Myanmar: Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi, finally opened up over Rohingya crisis that shook the world to an extent that Iran’s supreme leaderAyatullah Khamenei called her ‘cruel woman’. Suu kyi Tuesday said she is ‘concerned’ over Muslims fleeing to Bangladesh.
“We are concerned to hear the number of Muslims fleeing areas to Bangladesh,” she added in the live TV address, condemning any “human rights violations” that may have exacerbated the crisis, aljazeera reported.
Suu Kyi said that Myanmar does not fear “international scrutiny” over the Rohingya crisis and also said that Myanmar is ready to aid return of those who fled.
The Nobel Peace Prize laureate has come under severe criticism over the past month as more than 410,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar to neighbouring Bangladesh, escaping what the UN has described as “ethnic cleansing”.
Leaders from the UK, US, France, Canada and Australia had urged Suu Kyi to push for an end to violence against the Rohingya.
