Myanmar’s army chief said the United Nations had no right to interfere in the soveregnity of the country, referring himself to the Rohingya crisis, just a week after a UN probe called for him and other top generals to be prosecuted for “genocide” against the Rohingya minority.
The defiant response is the public reaction to the UN call urging the Security Council to refer Myanmar’s top military brass to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
According to Myanmar’s army chief reported to military-run newspaper Myawady, “no country, organization or group has the “right to interfere in and make decisions over sovereignty of a country” because “Talks to meddle in internal affairs cause misunderstanding”.
The news is reported by the daily newspaper Dhaka Tribune.
More than 700,000 of the stateless Rohingya Muslims had to flee over the border into Bangladesh.
