28 February 2021
  1. The Government of Japan is deeply concerned about the situation where many civilians in protests across Myanmar were injured or killed by the use of force including shootings by the Myanmar security apparatus, and many others have been detained. And, the Government of Japan strongly condemns the violence against civilians, which has been continuing despite repeated calls by the international community.
  2. The Government of Japan once again strongly urges the Myanmar military to release those who are detained including State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and to swiftly restore Myanmar’s democratic political system.
