The UK Government has unequivocally condemned the coup in Myanmar.

The UK Government have a longstanding policy and practice of according recognition to states, not governments.

We have stated clearly and publicly that we believe that former Ambassador Kyaw Zwar Minn took a brave stand in speaking out against the coup. The FCDO is in regular contact with him. We have provided him with significant support to help him and his family start a new life in the UK.
