Retno added that she has consulted about the Myanmar crisis with her counterpart other countries United States, China, India, Great Britain and the European Union, as well as United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
Retno’s more emphatic stance comes a week after Suu Kyi’s followers protested before the Indonesian embassy in Yangon, after they viewed Indonesia’s perspective on the elections was deemed too sympathetic to the military.
Myanmar’s military forces, the Tatmadaw, carried out the February 1 coup, four months after they lost to Aung San Suu Kyi's NLD [National League for Democracy] party in elections last November, and arrested her as well as other NLD members.
They rejected the results of the elections on grounds that they were rigged, and promised to hold new elections at an unspecified date. The military forces already killed three protesters in the unrest, which occurred on a daily basis since the military coup occurred.
