President Moon Jae-in has condemned the violent crackdown on anti-coup protesters in Myanmar.

In a social media post on Saturday, Moon said the use of violence against the people of Myanmar must stop now and there should not be any more loss of life.

He said he condemns the violent suppression of protests by the military and police forces and strongly called for the immediate release of all those detained, including State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi. 

He added that South Korea stands firmly with the people of Myanmar for a quick, peaceful restoration of democracy.

In the message written both in Korean and English, the president added the hashtags #JusticeForMyanmar and #StandWithMyanmar.

On February 1, Myanmar's military carried out a coup and detained the country's elected leaders, claiming election fraud. It has since been cracking down on anti-coup demonstrations resulting in dozens of deaths.
