Sankei wrote that the House of Representatives approved a resolution on Tuesday denouncing the military coup in Myanmar (Burma) in February. It described the coup as “trampling on local people’s efforts and hopes for democratization.” The daily added that it is uncertain whether the parliament will pass a proposed motion condemning China’s violations of human rights and civil liberties in Xinjiang and Hong Kong during the current Diet term that ends on June 16 due to reluctance within the ruling LDP.
