UN Special Envoy Warns of Impending Full-Blown Armed Conflict in Myanmar

UNITED NATIONS (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 21st October, 2021) UN Special Envoy for Myanmar Christine Schraner Burgener warned on Thursday about the possibility of a full-scale internal armed conflict unfolding in the country after the military seized power in a February coup.

Schraner Burgener said she believed people in Myanmar will not accept the coup and not give up.

Instead, civilians have been increasing the anti-military movement, seeking to mobilize a greater number of forces, the special envoy noted.

"If this situation continues, then, I would say, we would have a full-blown internal armed conflict," Schraner Burgener said in the last briefing at the United Nations in her current capacity.

"The situation is very volatile and not stabilized," she added.
