Myanmar’s Rohingya issue is now the headline of each and every media outlet, but the premier of the state has no words for Rohingya Muslims. On Wednesday, Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi blamed “terrorists” for “a huge iceberg of misinformation” on the violence in Rakhine state against Rohingya Muslims, but she did not even mention a single word for nearly 125,000 Rohingya Muslims who have fled over the border to Bangladesh since Aug. 25.
She has came under the huge pressure from the Muslims populated countries along with this, on Tuesday the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned of the risk of ethnic cleansing and regional destabilization.
In a statement issued by her office on Facebook, Suu Kyi said the government had “already started defending all the people in Rakhine in the best way possible” and warned against misinformation that could mar relations with other countries.
“She said that kind of fake information which was inflicted on the deputy prime minister was simply the tip of a huge iceberg of misinformation calculated to create a lot of problems between different countries and with the aim of promoting the interests of the terrorists.”
