The United States has announced that it would impose sanctions against those involved in last week’s military coup in Myanmar.
President Joe Biden has demanded that the country immediately return power to that nation’s democratically elected government.
According to him, the sanctions will target military leaders who directed the coup, as well as their business interests and close family members.
Reports say President Biden’s administration will also impose export controls and freeze U.S assets that benefit Myanmar’s government but will continue to uphold support for health care and other benefits that directly support the country’s citizens.
