dpa/GNA – The European Union is set to sanction 11 individuals involved in Myanmar’s military coup and the repression of demonstrators there, the bloc’s top diplomat Josep Borrell said.

The situation is deteriorating in the country, Borell said on his way into talks with the 27 EU foreign ministers in Brussels.

“We don’t want to punish the people in Myanmar with sanctions,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said. “We are still pushing to stay in dialogue for a peaceful solution.”

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
