“I think the Myanmar military is to blame a lot and the only person that can turn them around, I believe, is Aung San Suu Kyi, and she should start doing that.”
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte told Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi, heavily criticised abroad for failing to stand up for largely stateless Rohingya Muslims, that she shouldn’t bother about rights activists as they are “just a noisy bunch.”
Burma’s State Counsellor will attend the 25th anniversary of the ASEAN-India Commemorative Summit in New Delhi.
Gen. Gun Maw of the Kachin Independence Army posted a copy of Suu Kyi’s letter, dated 22 December, on his Facebook page.
At the invitation of the Chinese government, Suu Kyi is scheduled to deliver a speech as a special guest at the meeting.
State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi will soon visit Beijing, state media said on Monday, as Burma appears to draw closer to its northern neighbour China amid global criticism over an exodus of Rohingya refugees.
