The United States on Friday called for other U.N. member states to join it in holding Myanmar coup leaders to account, including through targeted sanctions such as those it imposed on Thursday.

"We ask all Council members to join the United States and others to ... join us in promoting accountability for those responsible for the coup, including through targeted sanctions," Mark Cassayre, U.S. Chargé d'Affaires at the U.S. mission to the U.N. in Geneva, said.

The statement is Washington's first address on a human rights issue at a formal session of the body since the Trump administration quit it in June 2018.
