CDA at the Timor-Leste Embassy ordered to leave Myanmar

On 25 August 2023, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Myanmar issued a Diplomatic Note ordering the Charge d’ Affaires of the Embassy of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste in Yangon to leave not later than 1 September 2023.
The Ministry has observed that despite the repeated warnings and demands of the Government of Myanmar, the Government of Timor-Leste has conducted engagements with terrorist group so-called National Unity Government (NUG) which has been encouraging and committing terrorist and violence acts in Myanmar.
The Ministry recalled the fact that the Counter-Terrorism Central Committee of Myanmar has officially declared the unlawful associations — the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH), the National Unity Government (NUG), People’s Defence Force (PDF) and all their subordinates — as terrorist groups by its Notification No 2/2021 on 8 May 2021 in accord with the Counter-Terrorism Law of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
Such irresponsible actions of the government of Timor-Leste are not only harming the bilateral diplomatic relations between the two countries but also encouraging the terrorist groups to further committing their violations in Myanmar. The Ministry also strongly protests against the government of Timor-Leste’s actions and remarks which are inconsistent with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. — TC
