The South-East Asian country has been in crisis since the February coup when the military seized power from Aung San Suu Kyi's elected government, with almost daily protests and a crackdown by the junta in which hundreds of people have been killed.
Meanwhile, AFP reported that The UN General Assembly on Tuesday (May 18) is set to consider a draft non-binding resolution calling for "an immediate suspension" of the transfer of weapons to the military junta of Myanmar, a UN official said Sunday.
Unlike Security Council resolutions, General Assembly resolutions are non-binding but carry strong political significance.
If an approval by consensus cannot be reached then the full General Assembly -- 193 member states -- will vote on the measure.
Introduced by Liechtenstein, with support from the European Union, Britain, and the United States, the measure will be considered at the plenary meeting set for Tuesday at 1900 GMT.
The draft resolution calls for "an immediate suspension of the direct and indirect supply, sale, or transfer of all weapons, munitions, and other military-related equipment to Myanmar."
"The meeting will be in person," a UN spokesman told AFP.
The draft, which has been under negotiation for weeks, is co-sponsored by 48 countries, with South Korea the sole Asian country.
