Thanks for your note. Here is our statement that was covered in Reuters: “We have taken action against accounts on our platforms in accordance with our policies and applicable laws, including disabling accounts on Google services and taking down a number of YouTube channels and videos related to the Myanmar military. We will follow and act according to relevant Government sanctions decisions as they evolve. Our priority is to help people in Myanmar access information and communicate safely.”

We are members of the Global Network Initiative, who spearheaded, and Asia Internet Coalition, who signed, this joint statement.
