"On Armed Forces Day we remember those killed and displaced by violence over the last year, including at least 100 people killed on this day alone one year ago.

"Some countries continue to supply lethal assistance to Myanmar's military regime, enabling its violence and repression. We urge all countries to support the people of Myanmar by immediately stopping the sale or transfer of arms, military equipment, materiel, dual-use equipment and technical assistance to Myanmar, in line with UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/75/287. We reiterate our call on the military to cease its violence and restore Myanmar's path to democracy."
