France condemns the latest prison sentence handed down this morning against State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi. This travesty of justice exacerbates an already very troubling political situation.

As the EU and its member states had already emphasized on December 6, ending the crisis in Burma will require a political dialogue bringing together all the parties to the conflict; an immediate end to army attacks on civilian populations, as we saw in Kayah, Kayin and Chin States; and the unconditional release of all political prisoners detained since February 1, 2021.

France continues to fully support ASEAN’s efforts to implement a five-point consensus that includes the establishment of a broad political dialogue.
