Myanmar’s Suu Kyi: Government could have handled Rakhine issue better

Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi on Thursday said in hindsight her government could have handled the situation in Rakhine state better.

Some 700,000 Rohingya Muslims fled Rakhine after government troops led a brutal crackdown in Myanmar’s Rakhine state. There are of course ways in which, with hindsight, the situation could’ve been handled better, Suu Kyi said at the World Economic Forum on ASEAN in Hanoi.

But we believe that in order to have long-term security and stability we have to be fair to all sides. We can’t choose who should be protected by rule of law, she said.
