The U.N. General Assembly on June 18 took the rare step of calling on member states to "prevent the flow of arms" into Myanmar, part of a non-binding resolution condemning the military coup in the violence-wracked country.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that the resolution - which did not go so far as to call for a global arms embargo - also demands that the military "immediately stop all violence against peaceful demonstrators."
It was approved by 119 countries, with 36 abstaining including China, Myanmar’s main ally. Only one country, Belarus, voted against it.
