India abstains from voting on UNGA resolution on Myanmar | India News – Times of India

UNITED NATIONS: India has abstained on a UN General Assembly resolution on Myanmar, saying its views haven’t been mirrored within the draft resolution and a “consultative and constructive” method involving Myanmar‘s neighbouring nations is essential because the worldwide neighborhood strives for the peaceful resolution of the difficulty.
The UNGA adopted a resolution on Myanmar on Friday that known as “upon the Myanmar armed forces to respect the people’s will as freely expressed by results of the general election of November 8, 2020, to end the state of emergency, to respect all human rights of people of Myanmar and to allow the sustained democratic transition of Myanmar, including the opening of the democratically elected parliament, and by working towards bringing all national institutions, including the armed forces, under a fully inclusive civilian government that is representative of the people’s will”.
The resolution was adopted with 119 nations voting “yes”, Belarus voting “no” and India together with 35 different nations abstaining, together with China and Russia.
In its rationalization of vote, India mentioned “we find that our views have not been reflected in the draft being considered for adoption today. We would like to reiterate that a consultative and constructive approach involving the neighbouring countries and the region, remains important as the international community strives for the peaceful resolution of the issue”.
“The fact that there is lack of support from all neighbouring countries as well as several countries in the region itself should, hopefully, serve as an eye-opener to those who choose to pursue a hasty course of action,” India mentioned, including that it doesn’t imagine that the tabling of this resolution for adoption at this juncture, is “conducive to aiding our joint efforts towards strengthening democratic process in Myanmar”.
“We are therefore constrained to abstain,” India mentioned.
