Myanmar Army Chief Says No Right To Interfere As Un Weighs Rohingya Crisis


YANGON – Myanmar’s army chief on Monday warned against foreign interference as world leaders gather at the United Nations to find ways to hold the country’s powerful generals accountable for atrocities against Rohingya Muslims last year.

In his first public comments on the subject since a report by a U.N. fact-finding mission this month, Min Aung Hlaing said Myanmar abided by U.N. pacts, but warned that “talks to meddle in internal affairs” cause “misunderstanding”.

“As countries set different standards and norms, any country, organization and group has no right to interfere in and make decision(s) over sovereignty of a country,” Min Aung Hlaing said in comments reported in English on his website.
