No representative from Myanmar is scheduled to address the annual high-level U.N. General Assembly, a U.N. spokesman said on Friday, amid rival claims for the country's U.N. seat in New York after a military coup ousted the elected government, APA reports quoting Reuters.

Competing claims have also been made on Afghanistan's U.N. seat after the Taliban seized power last month. The ambassador for the ousted government is set to give his speech on Monday.

"At this point, Myanmar is not speaking," U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

Myanmar's current U.N. Ambassador Kyaw Moe Tun - appointed by Aung San Suu Kyi's elected government - had initially been expected to address the 193-member General Assembly on Monday, the final day of the gathering.
