Myanmar asks Interpol to help fight ‘extremism’; global body says it will not interfere

CNA – Global police body Interpol said yesterday it will not provide help to countries in situations that involve domestic politics, days after the Myanmar army announced it had sought support.

The Myanmar army’s Foreign Affairs Ministry said on Tuesday it called on various international security organisations to work with Myanmar to fight “extremism”, citing the actions of its opponents, including the National Unity Government (NUG), the country’s de facto shadow government.

Responding to CNA queries, an Interpol spokesperson said it does not comment on specific cases or specific activities of a member country, apart from in exceptional circumstances.
