SEOUL– The South Korean government on Friday welcomed the adoption of a historic United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution expressing “deep concern” about the “ongoing state of emergency” imposed by the military in Myanmar and calling for an immediate end to the internal strife.

In a statement, the foreign ministry said the government “welcomes and supports” the approval of the UNSC’s first-ever resolution on Myanmar on Wednesday (New York time).
