UN President Antonio Guterres has made a shocking revelation during the General Assembly meeting. He said that since the coup in Myanmar, more than 15,000 people have entered the Indian territory so far. In his report, he said that due to military confrontation in the border areas of Myanmar, Thailand, China and India have been affected and ethnic conflict has started in the border areas, which is a matter of increasing concern.
Two lakh 20 thousand people displaced
In a report on Rohingya Muslims and minorities, Guterres said 336 thousand people were displaced in Myanmar before the February 1 coup. But since the coup, about two lakh 20 thousand people have been internally displaced due to violence. Apart from this, more than 15 thousand people have entered the Indian border and about seven thousand people have gone to Thailand.
1600 km unfenced border
The shocking thing is that Myanmar shares a border of about 1600 km with India, where there is no arrangement of any kind of security. Apart from this, a maritime boundary in the Bay of Bengal connects with Myanmar. Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram also share borders with Myanmar in the north-east. Guterres said in his report that Aung San Suu Kyi and other leaders have been taken into custody since the military came to power, and tensions have risen across Myanmar with areas falling under a nationwide ceasefire agreement in 2015.
