WASHINGTON – The United States on Monday imposed sanctions on two members of Myanmar’s military junta following the February 1 coup in the country.
The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control said the move targeted Lt. Gen. Moe Myint Tun and Gen Maung Maung Kyaw.
“The army must reverse its actions and urgently restore the democratically elected government in Burma, otherwise the Treasury Department will not hesitate to take further action,” the department said in a statement.
The move freezes all US assets of blacklisted people and generally prohibits Americans from doing business with them.
