Myanmar is not afraid of Rohingya crises, Aung San Suu Kyi says | World Press Releases
Mr Aung San Suu Kyi has broke her silences about the Rohingya war in Myanmar and made a statement condemned by Amnesty as a" mixture of falsehoods and victims". Speaking in her first official discourse since the violent armed repression of the Rohingya Muslim minorities, described by the United Nations as a "textbook example of ethnical cleansing", the Nobel Prize winner did not criticize the armed forces and said they were "not afraid of interna-tional control".
Myanmar, as a conscientious member of the world' s population, is not afraid of world control," she said. "We must ensure that these accusations are founded on sound proof before we act," she said in her address from the capitol Naypyidaw. Her insistence that since 5 September there have been "no conflict and no evictions" against the Moslem minorities of the state, a point that is controversial among those who have escaped war.
Admired for her long struggle against the world' s armed forces, Aung San Suu Kyi said the vast majority of Rohingya communities were not affected by war. The Amnesty International said Aung San Suu Kyi's talk showed that the guide and her administration "bury their minds in the sands about the horror that is developing in the state of Rakhine".
"The Aung San Suu Kyi claim that her administration is not afraid of world control sounds hollow," said James Gomez, Asia Pacific region president of Amnesty Int'l, who later described the address as "a mixture of falsehoods and sacrificial facts". Burma Campaign UK, sagte, die Rede sei Rede sei "business as normal, jeial, denial as normal".
The Rohingya migrants in neighboring Bangladesh have described a violent military attack on a civilian population, while satelite images show a large number of Rohingya settlements ravaged by fire. About 421,000 persons have escaped from Myanmar to neighboring Bangladesh in less than a months, according to the UN MIG. The International Organization for Migration spokesperson Joel Millman said that an estimated 20,000 Palestinians cross the borders every two years.
Marixie Mercado, spokesperson for Unicef, said the UN Children's Fund now estimated that over 250,000 refugees have escaped from Myanmar in the last 25 working day. At Kutupalong Abdul Hafiz Reuters said that Rohingya once placed more trust in Aung San Suu Kyi than in the army, which not only reigned half a hundred years earlier, but also kept her under home detention for many years.
Hafiz now said she was a "liar" and Rohingya suffers more than ever. Aung San Suu Kyi said she should give greater accessibility to the communities for the purpose of documenting the devastation. Since the outbreak of new acts of force on 25 August, Aung San Suu Kyi had not talked openly about the crises, although she said in a telephone conversation with the Kurdish leader that "terrorists" were behind an "iceberg of misinformation" about the state.
In her 30-minute television address, she said she was "deeply concerned" about the plight of the individuals involved in the war. Mr Aung San Suu Kyi said the state was" always ready" to take back those who have undergone a verifying law. It was not immediately clear, however, how many of the Rohingya who had escaped from Myanmar would be eligible for returns, as most of them are not considered civil.
Meanwhile, the leader of a UN inquiry into Myanmar violent acts asked the UN HRC for more to investigate accusations of genocide, tortures, sexual assault, the use of land mines and the cremation of communities. Aung San Suu Kyi's comments on the inquiry were "a good sign for the fact-finding mission," he said.
Myanmar's envoy to the UN, Htin Lynn, said Darusman's inquiry was "not a useful approach" and that the state is taking appropriate safeguards against terrorism and is trying to re-establish it. In her address, Aung San Suu Kyi only once referred to the Rohingya by name in relation to the Rohingya Salvation Army's militants in the Arakan Rohingya Army.
In Myanmar, which is mostly Buddhist - among them some powerful Islam-hostile Buddhist friars - many say that the Rohingya are Bangladeshi migrants. Criticized by other Nobel Prize winners for not speaking out against force, Aung San Suu Kyi called on the rest of the planet to see Myanmar as a whole and said it was a pity that the global fellowship was only focusing on one of the country's many issues.
"It is trying to regain some level of legitimacy in the world without saying too much about what will get it into difficulty with the[military] and the Myanmar tribe that doesn't like the Rohingya at all," said Phil Robertson of Human Rights Watch. Following years of municipal conflict between Rohingya and Rakhine Buddhists, the latest round of violent clashes broke out in August, when the police started a massive counter-offensive in reaction to co-ordinated Rohingya warfare.
According to the UN, more than 421,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh and 30,000 Rakhine Buddhists and Hindus have been driven out. Mr Aung San Suu Kyi has called off a scheduled trip to the UN General Meeting in New York.
