Who exactly do these new sanctions target? We don't know for sure, the administration says details will come later this week, but I think it's pretty safe to say the coup leader, Senior General Men online is at the top of the list, along with a small circle of subordinates, basically the same bunch probably who are sanctioned by the U. S and 2019. For their role in the brutal crackdown against the Muslim minority Rohingya Amid allegations of genocide. President Biden also said the sanctions might not be limited to just the generals but include family members and business interests, too. It's not clear if that meant the family's business interests or the military's like the two very, very large military, one companies involved in all sorts of businesses that jade trade Helicon banks, etcetera, some of which have foreign investors or partners, who came after Western sanctions started being lifted in 2012 at the beginning of what look, then to be the start of me and March transition to Democratic rule Well, Michael, Me and Mara is closer to China and other Southeast Asian countries than it is to the U.

It might not be happy with the coup, either. It got along just fine without some shoot on some sushi and their party, and there are some reports the military thought Souci and China were getting on far too well.

"Go Slash black freedom. It's 8 22. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm the wheel King. Good Morning, Me and Mars Military ruled that country for almost 50 years in 2015, a Democratic election brought on song Souci, who'd peacefully fought against military rule to power and then this week, the military took power back in a coup. And Souci has been detained. Aaron Connolly is an analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. He's on the line with us from Singapore. Good morning, Aaron. Good morning. Well, were there any warning signs this coup was coming about a week ago, The military started to make threats that if the civilian government didn't take its issues, with November election for which it had provided no evidence More seriously than it would consider taking power. It seemed to step back from that threat on a couple of occasions, and then on Monday morning, it arrested key civilian leaders. But it was really only about a week ago that most people in Myanmar and most Myanmar specialists overseas started to believe that the military was serious about taking back power. What is the military claiming happened in this election? They claim that there were irregularities with voter lists in the election, particularly in ethnic areas, and that if the election voter lists were scrutinized more closely than that, they would have had a chance of winning more seats in the national legislature. But again they haven't provided any evidence for those claims. Okay, So you're skeptical of the claim that there was something wrong with the election. What's the relationship between Souci and the generals who now detain her? It's been a touchy relationship over time. Of course, they detained her for many years from 1990 until 2011 releasing her on a couple of occasions. But then she appeared to be trying to build a more solid relationship with them. After she took power in 2016, at least control over the civilian government military maintain control over the three key ministries, the Ministry of Defense Home Affairs Order affairs and also all the security forces. At times, she appeared to be trying to build a working relationship with them. But ultimately that foundered when they refused to respect her ambitions, particularly to become president, which they had outlawed under the Constitution that they wrote in 2008. Okay, so she lost the General's has she also lost the civilians? What, to ordinary people there. Think of her Well. She won the last election. Her party that nationally for democracy, won the last election in November in a landslide. She remains incredibly popular in Myanmar. And that's likely to continue. There's no change to that. What do you envision will happen over the next couple of days and weeks? Will there be any kind of push within the country or outside the country to release her to end the could give power back to people have been democratically elected? It's still really unclear. There was one statement that was released on one of her Facebook pages yesterday that suggested that before she was detained, she had called people out onto the streets. But then there were other members of her party. You said that that statement was inauthentic. There are some who would prefer to see street demonstrations against this. They believe that that might reverse the result of this coup. On the other hand, there are those who remember what happened in 1988 when people came out onto the streets following a military coup, then on hundreds, possibly thousands of people died in the violence. After the military sought to suppress those demonstrations. Myanmar was ruled by the military for decades. Is there a fear that the country could be headed back in that direction? Yeah, Absolutely. The military says that it's only going to take back power for one year and then it's going to hold elections and return power to a civilian government. But it might not necessarily adhere to that timeline. It believes that if it removes on since achieve from politics that it could begin to win elections again, But it's not really clear that that's the case and it's not clear that people will cooperate. Participate in a semi democratic system that excludes on San Souci, or the National League from Democracy. What are the implications outside of Myanmar in Southeast Asia more broadly well yesterday, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, which is the regional block in this region. I'm in Singapore issued a statement calling for return to what they said was normalcy and number of Southeast Asian diplomats have said to me on background that, but they're looking for his return to the status quo as of Sunday evening, That's a relatively strong statement for as Ian And the U. N Security Council is scheduled to hold a meeting on the situation later today. The UK is currently in the presidency of the Security Council and has tended to focus on me and Mara issues when it's held the presidency. So I would anticipate quite a bit of international pressure both from within the region and around the globe on the military to at the very least, truncate the period in which it intends to hold power and perhaps to shape the nature of the government that would follow after the military hands back power. Aaron Connolly of the International Institute for Strategic Studies and Singapore. Aaron. Thanks for being with us, thanks to will Hmm. This week. Brian Sick, Nick.

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm the wheel King. Good Morning, Me and Mars Military ruled that country for almost 50 years in 2015, a Democratic election brought on song Souci, who'd peacefully fought against military rule to power and then this week, the military took power back in a coup. And Souci has been detained. Aaron Connolly is an analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. He's on the line with us from Singapore. Good morning, Aaron. Good morning. Well, were there any warning signs this coup was coming about a week ago, the military started to make threats that have the civilian government didn't take It's issues with November election for which it had provided no evidence more seriously than it would consider taking power. It seemed to step back from that threat on a couple of occasions, and then on Monday morning it arrested The civilian leaders. But it was really only about a week ago that most people in Myanmar and most me and Marv specialists overseas started to believe that the military was serious about taking back power. What is the military claiming happened in this election? They claim that there were irregularities with voter lists in the election, particularly in ethnic areas, and that if the election voter lists were scrutinized more closely than that, they would have had a chance of winning more seats in the national legislature. But again they haven't provided any evidence for those claims. Okay, So you're skeptical of the claim that there was something wrong with the election. What's the relationship between Souci and the generals who now detain her? It's been a touchy relationship over time. Of course, they detained her for many years from 1990 until 2011 releasing her on a couple of occasions. But then she appeared to be trying to build a more solid relationship with them after she took power in 2016. At least control over the civilian government military maintain control over the three key ministries, the Ministry of Defense, Home Affairs, border Affairs and also all the security forces. At times she appeared to be trying to build a working relationship with them. But ultimately that foundered when they refused to respect her ambitions, particularly to become president, which they had outlawed under the Constitution. That they wrote in 2008. Okay, so she lost the general's has. She also lost the civilians? What, to ordinary people there. Think of her well. She won the last election. Her party, the National League for Democracy, won the last election in November in a landslide. She remains incredibly popular in Myanmar, and that's likely to continue. There's no change to that. What do you envision will happen over the next couple of days and weeks? Will there be any kind of push within the country or outside the country to release her to end the could give power back to People have been democratically elected. It's still really unclear. There was one statement that was released on one of her Facebook pages yesterday that suggested that before she was detained, she had called people out onto the streets. But then there were other members of her party. You said that that statement was inauthentic. There are some who would prefer to see street demonstrations against this. They believe that that might reverse the result of this coup. On the other hand, there are those who remember what happened in 1988 when people came out onto this Treats following a military coup, then on hundreds, possibly thousands of people died in the violence. After the military sought to suppress those demonstrations. Myanmar was ruled by the military for decades. Is there a fear that the country could be headed back in that direction? Yeah, Absolutely. The military says that it's only going to take back power for one year and then it's going to hold elections and return power to a civilian government. But it might not necessarily adhere to that timeline. It believes that if it removes on since achieve from politics that it could begin to win elections again, But it's not really clear that that's the case and it's not clear that people will cooperate. Participate in a semi democratic system that excludes on San Souci, or the National League from Democracy. What are the implications outside of Myanmar in Southeast Asia more broadly well yesterday, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, which is the regional block in this region. I'm in Singapore issued a statement calling for return to what they said was normalcy and number of Southeast Asian diplomats have said to me on background that, but they're looking for his return to the status quo as of Sunday evening. That's a relatively strong statement for as Ian and the U. N Security Council is scheduled to hold a meeting on the situation later today. The UK is currently in the presidency of the Security Council and has tended to focus on me and Mara issues when it's held the presidency. So I would anticipate quite a bit of international pressure both from within the region and around the globe on the military to at the very least, truncate the period in which it intends to hold power and perhaps to shape the nature of the government that would follow after the military hands. Back power. Aaron Connolly of the International Institute for Strategic Studies in Singapore. Aaron Thanks for being with us, thanks to all Yeah. This week. Brian Sick,.

"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles and I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington. The U. S is racing to vaccinate as many people as possible against covert 19 about 31 million doses have been administered so far, which means the country still has a long way to go to contain the virus. And one limiting factor could be the supply of new doses. When we know the two companies that have emergency authorization so far, Fizer and Madonna they are supposed to deliver 100 million doses each by the end of March. That's according to the federal contracts. At the current rate, though both companies would have to ramp up production to meet that goal. NPR pharmaceuticals correspondent Sidney Lumpkin is here to tell us more, He said me. Good afternoon. Okay, So we have this goal 100 million doses each by the end of March. Can these companies meet that given? Neither is making enough right now. Well, according to the federal government, they're expected to reach that goal, but they're both going to have to make a lot more doses every week to do it. Last week, Each company released 4.3 million doses of vaccine to the federal government this week. Madonna is pulling ahead and releasing 5.8 million doses. That's according to allocation data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Meanwhile, Fizer is lagging behind at about 4.4 million doses on Lee 70,000 more doses than the previous week. And what is the holdup? Why are they liking So it's not entirely clear? But I asked a Wall Street analyst named Geoffrey Porges at Spb Lyric, he says Fizer has spread itself thinner than Madonna has. Visor is committed to delivering considerably more doses outside the US than Madonna in Europe. Visor had to cut back on weekly deliveries last month, which made some countries like Italy really angry, But porches told me he's still confident advisers ability to hit its goals, he said. It wouldn't be making these big commitments if it didn't think it could meet them. But again if Fizer is already behind now, and they're supposed to be ramping up, how's it gonna work? It's a good question, because if it keeps releasing the same number of doses at the same rate as this week, the company would fall around 30 million doses short of its goal. Even Madonna will need to start releasing more doses to the United States each week on top of the ramp up we've already seen. Andy Slavitt is a senior adviser for the White House Covert 19 response team, and he spoke about this at a briefing last week. Visor and Madonna are committed to delivering a total of 200 million doses by the end of March, with much of it coming at the end of the quarter. So will accelerate. So that is what the White House is saying. What about the company's? What do they say? Well, when I asked them for more details, they didn't say much. Madonna reaffirmed that it will hit 100 million doses on time, but didn't provide more details about production from week to week. Visor didn't respond to my questions. Historically, there hasn't been much transparency when it comes to vaccine supply. Here's Glen Nowak, a former director of media relations at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We saw this and I was at CDC in 2004. When we had a flu vaccine supply shortage. We had a hard time then getting accurate information about how much vaccine was going to be available went And they had sort of similar transparency issues in 2009 when the shingles vaccine was in short supply, and just real quick, the other vaccines in the pipeline. There are two more that just released data this week. That was pretty positive. Johnson and Johnson and Novavax AstraZeneca is expected to release data soon and we could be looking at if the FDA approves these three. You know, more supply coming. In the next months. All right, fingers crossed fingers, toes and everything that Sidney Lumpkin, NPR's pharmaceuticals correspondent, Thank you. Thanks for having me. Myanmar's military staged a coup today and detained the country's de facto leader on Song Souci. It is the latest turbulent turn in that country and a return to detention for sushi who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. She was put under house arrest after the military refused to accept the results of the previous year's election that saw her party win an outright majority. She later became the country's de facto leader after the military decided to loosen its grip on power in 2011, and well, she remains popular within the country internationally. Her reputation has suffered. Joining us now from war is Laurel Miller, director of the Asia Program for the International Crisis Group. Welcome. Thank you. So you know me. Amar had been on a path towards democracy. What? What exactly led to this military coup and this detention for Souci? Well, first, I think it's important to recognize that man. There was still evolving as a democracy, and I think we have to say it was Partial democracy in which the military already had enormous share of power in the country. So I think this makes your question even more pointed one in which we have to wonder. Why was the extent of control that the military already had? Over Myanmar. Not enough. I think we have to look Tioga Couple of factors won the November 2020 election in which young sons hooches party won. An overwhelming victory was a pretty stinging and perhaps humiliating defeat for the military on also, there is seems to have been perhaps a personal factor here with animosity between Young sons, Hoochie and Thekla Andr in chief who is scheduled to end his term in the middle of this year and perhaps thought that he would have some kind of landing pad in politics. Can you talk a little bit about Su Chi's history as a public figure in Myanmar and And what led to her initial detention Well. Her initial detention was sparked by the first time that her political party won an overwhelming electoral victory, and that was in elections that were held in 1990. That result was then nullified by the military, and she was put into house arrest for almost 15 years out of the period between 1989 and 2010. Then after the transition towards democracy began about a decade ago, her party then won a landslide victory in the next elections that were held in. These are huge. Victories that demonstrated her personal popularity. Aside from her political party's popularity, well internationally, Souci has come under very heavy criticism for what has been happening to the Rohingya in Myanmar. Can you talk about why So much of the international community lays the blame at her feet? Yeah, I mean, there is an enormous distinction between her enduring popularity at home and the demolish mint of her reputation internationally and in the West, in particular as a result of how she has handled the rigging issue..
