Myanmar (Burma) - Aung San Suu Kyi Blames Terrorists for Misinformation

As the pressure of the world is piling up and the United Nations are now calling the deportation of Rohingya refugees into neighboring Bangladesh ‘Ethnic Cleansing’, Aung San Suu Kyi calls out to organizations all around that they are being misinformed by terrorists.

On Twitter she has commented on the “fake news photographs” that were posted by Turkey’s deputy prime minister which allegedly showed dead Rohingya in Myanmar, but these photographs were in fact were taken elsewhere.

“That kind of fake information … was simply the tip of a huge iceberg of misinformation calculated to create a lot of problems between different communities and with the aim of promoting the interest of the terrorists.”

Ms Suu Kyi’s office quoted her on Facebook in her first official statement since the violence resumed in the state almost 14 days ago, in which it was confirmed that she had spoken to Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan about the alleged accusations.

Meanwhile the UN alleges that the government of Myanmar (Burma) is causing the deportation of 270,000 people that have since fled to Bangladesh. Mr Zeid Ra‘ad al-Hussein, who works for the UN human rights department said: “We have received multiple reports and satellite imagery of security forces and local militia burning Rohingya villages, and consistent accounts of extrajudicial killings, including shooting fleeing civilians.”

The United Nations security council will soon vote on a resolution. In order to stop this from happening, the National Security Adviser Thaung Tun of Myanmar (Bruma) has been China and Russia, who are both permanent members of the Security Council, to block any UN resolution that would be presented.

Tun said: “We are negotiating with some friendly countries not to take it to the Security Council. China is our friend and we have a similar friendly relationship with Russia so it will not be possible for that issue to go forward.”

Myanmar accused international media of misrepresenting the violence and pointed to several stories which were “published with the intent to deceive the public”, according to Tun.
