Biden called on the Myanmar military to “relinquish the power they have seized” after his administration called the takeover of the nation’s government a “military coup.” Soon after, Japanese drinks giant Kirin Holdings announced it will “terminate” its partnership with Myanmar’s military-owned MEHL conglomerate.
President says the US is working with allies and partners to address the army’s takeover and Aung San Suu Kyi’s arrest.
