Myanmar: An Overthrown Elected Government's Fight To Restore A Stolen Democracy

Myanmar has been under a military dictatorship for more than 6 months, a period marked by civil disobedience movements and demonstrations which drew deadly and violent responses from security forces. This follows the February 1st overthrow of the elected National League for Democracy administration, led by Aung San Suu Kyi.

Today, lawmakers from the NLD have regrouped to form the National Unity Government, Myanmar's government-in-exile.

Keith Kam speaks to the Deputy Foreign Minister of the NUG, Moe Zaw Oo, to find out where the future lies for the country.
