A news source in Myanmar revealed that as the political unrest in the country is escalating, some countries are preparing relief flights for their people to get out of the hot zones.
“Vietnam has chartered two flights on Friday to transport almost 400 Vietnamese in Myanmar back home, while Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs is advising its people to avoid going to protest areas and get out of Myanmar as soon as they can,” it said.
