The EU foreign policy chief on Saturday called on Myanmar security forces to end violence against protesters.

“I strongly condemn the violence against peaceful civilian protesters by the military. “I urge the military and all security forces in Myanmar to immediately end violence against civilians,” Josep Borrell said on Twitter.

The top EU diplomat also indicated that the bloc would implement sanctions against the military junta.

“We will discuss the latest developments in Myanmar with EU foreign ministers on Monday to make the right decisions,” Borrell wrote.

The bloc is considering imposing travel bans and freezing assets against those responsible for the coup and the crackdown on civilians, the Anadolu Agency learned from a senior EU official on Friday.

EU foreign ministers are expected to make a decision at their meeting Monday.

Security forces opened fire on protesters Saturday in the country’s largest city, Mandalay.

According to local media reports, at least two people lost their lives.

The country has seen massive protests since the military declared a state of emergency on February 1st.

The junta also arrested de facto leader and State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi and senior members of the then-ruling National League for Democracy party.

The coup took place hours before the first session of the country’s new parliament was set to convene after the November elections, in which the National League for Democracy made huge gains.

The military claimed the coup was organized as a result of “election fraud” in opinion polls that resulted in the party dominating parliament.
