Suu Kyi lies over identity of Rohingyas

UNB, Dhaka

Myanmar’s State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, during her conversation with former British prime minister David Cameron, claimed that Rohingyas are not from her country but are Bangladeshis, reports Newsweek. Cameron unveiled a new book on Thursday about his time in office between 2010 and 2016. The book, titled ‘For the Record’, recounts his meeting with Suu Kyi where she claimed that Rohingyas are not Burmese.

Upon first meeting Suu Kyi, who won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, Cameron was complimentary. “I met the pro-democracy campaigner Aung San Suu Kyi, who would soon run for the presidency, and reflected on what an amazing story hers could be: from fifteen years of house arrest to transforming her country into a real democracy.” But when Cameron met

Suu Kyi a year later in London, he felt differently about the interaction, according to the report.

“However, by the time she came to visit London in October 2013, all eyes were on her country’s Rohingya Muslims, who were being driven out of their homes by Buddhist Rakhines. There were stories of rape, murder and ethnic cleansing. The world is watching, I told her. Her reply was telling: ‘They are not really Burmese. They are Bangladeshi.’”
