The ministry also urged “all parties…to exercise self-restraint and put forth dialogue in finding solutions to challenges.”
The deteriorating security situation in Myanmar also prompted the Ministry to issue an advisory to Indonesian nationals in Myanmar.
Myanmar’s military forces carried out the coup by detaining Aung San Suu Kyi, the country’s president Min Wyint and other civilian politicians from her National League of Democracy or NLD party, months after they won the country’s elections in November 2020 by a landslide.
The military charged that the race was marred by voter fraud. Aside from the coup, they also declared a state of emergency for a year.
The NLD was Myanmar’s first democratically elected government in over 50 years after it won the country’s elections by a landslide in 2015.
Suu Kyi’s government was undermined by its unwillingness or inability to prevent the military from persecuting Myanmar’s Rohingya minority in Rakhine state. The persecution triggered a humanitarian crisis, as the Rohingya fled Myanmar for Indonesia and other countries.
