Rohingya Crisis: UN Has ‘No Right To Interfere’ Says Myanmar Army Chief


Myanmar’s army chief said the United Nations had no right to interfere in the sovereignty of the country 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 army chief’s first public reaction since a UN fact-finding mission urged the Security Council to refer Myanmar’s top military brass to the International Criminal Court (ICC). No country, organisation or group has the “right to interfere in and make decisions over sovereignty of a country,” Senior General Min Aung Hlaing told troops in a speech Sunday, according to the military-run newspaper Myawady.

“Talks to meddle in internal affairs (cause) misunderstanding.” UN investigators went into horrific detail about the atrocities allegedly committed by army troops last year in their”clearance operations” against the Rohingya, which forced more than 700,000 of the stateless Muslims to flee over the border into Bangladesh.
