Myanmar Ambassador to London makes a statement after being locked out of the UK embassy.

MYANMAR’S military junta was accused of carrying out a “coup” at its London embassy last night­— after locking its critical ambassador outside.

Kyaw Zwar Minn, the nation’s ambassador to the UK since 2014, said he had been “betrayed” by colleagues who had backed the army.

He has publicly opposed the armed coup and has been officially recalled.

The ambassador said: “When I left the embassy, they stormed inside the embassy and took it. They are from the Myanmar military.

“They are refusing to let me inside. They said they received instruction from the capital, so they are not going to let me in.

“This a coup. This is the UK, we are not in Myanmar, in Burma. They are not able to do this. The British Government won’t allow this one, you’ll see that.”
