Suu Kyi calls on the people of Myanmar
“Aung San Suu Kyi has called on the people of the country to unite,” he told Reuters. “Everyone has a different point of view, and we should respect that difference and discuss it with patience,” he said.

It is worth mentioning that the Myanmar army seized the national power through a coup d’etat on February 1, 2021, alleging rigging in the 2020 national elections. The 7-year-old Suu Kyi was arrested that night by junta forces led by the country’s army chief, Min Aung Hlaing. Multiple cases are pending against him.
