Following the coup, governments around the world called for the restoration of Myanmar's democracy. China called on all parties in the county to “appropriately resolve their differences." Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said on Monday that China "a friendly neighbor of Myanmar...hopes the various parties in Myanmar will appropriately resolve their differences under the constitutional and legal framework to protect political and social stability." The United States also condemned the coup, saying Washington “opposes any attempt to alter the outcome of recent elections or impede Myanmar's democratic transition.” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the US “stands with the people of Burma in their aspirations for democracy, freedom, peace, and development. The military must reverse these actions immediately.” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres voiced “grave concern” about the military coup, saying “the developments represent a serious blow to democratic reforms in Myanmar.” President of the UN General Assembly Volkan Bozkir also voiced concerns over the situation in Myanmar, describing it as “unacceptable.”
