LONDON (Reuters) - Britain said it would pursue diplomatic steps with its allies to ensure a return to democracy in Myanmar, after a military coup led to the arrest of civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
Britain's foreign ministry said it had summoned the southeast Asian country's ambassador for a meeting with Minister for Asia Nigel Adams.
"The Minister for Asia made clear the democratic wishes of the people of Myanmar must be respected, and the National Assembly peacefully re-convened. He also said that the UK would work with like-minded partners and pursue all necessary diplomatic levers to ensure a peaceful return to democracy," Britain's foreign ministry said in a statement.
