To Cambodian Prime Minister Mr. Hun Sen,

We strongly demand that you not be involved with and support the inhumane military junta.

Senior general Min Aung Hlaing, as you know, currently is among the worst, inhumane dictators in the world who has killed many people whom he has the duty to protect.

More than 1,400 civilians have died, including students, young children, women and vulnerable people. They have been brutally tortured and killed since the military coup on February 1, 2021.

Moreover, the security forces have burned down villages and towns, and 35 civilians have been burned alive.

You can imagine the military junta’s mindset by seeing these cases — how cruel they are.

That is why the United Nations, E.U. and international community have not recognized the military junta’s State Administration Council as a legitimate government. Asean had also taken the same stance before you became Asean chair.

The military junta is not a legitimate government of Myanmar. The people of Myanmar don’t recognize the military junta’s SAC as their government.

You will be forever the enemy of our country if you treat the military junta as a government.

We will never welcome you to our land unless you change your mind.

Min Tun Min Aung
Minister for immigration and human resources, Mon state, 2019-2021
Elected member of parliament, Mon state, 2015-2021
