The United States withheld Rs 350 crore from Myanmar

The United States will not provide the চার 42 million (approximately Rs. 350 crore) allocated to the Myanmar government. Gloria Steele, acting administrator of the US aid agency USAID, made the announcement on Thursday.

However, the US government will continue to provide assistance to the Rohingya, as well as provide humanitarian assistance to China, Kachin, Rakhine and Shan states.

A statement from the US embassy said that USAID was reviewing its assistance to Myanmar due to the military coup. As a result of this review, the Myanmar government will immediately cancel its allocation of দশ 4.2 billion and use it to strengthen the country’s civil society.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) will provide about 70 million in assistance to the people of Myanmar, and the United States will work together in the health sector and in the fight against COVID-19.
