Suu Kyi wants lasting solution
Myanmar's pro-democracy and opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has stressed the need for ensuring more vigilance and security along the Bangladesh-Myanmar border to prevent cross-border intrusion.
During a meeting with a special mission of International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP) in Yangon on Tuesday, she also expressed concern about the situation in Rakhine State, especially the Rohingya crisis.
Abdul Matin Khasru MP, law affairs secretary of Awami League, was present in the meeting as a member of the ICAPP mission, said an AL press release.
During the meeting, Khasru informed her of Bangladesh's position of preventing Rohingyas of Myanmar from entering Bangladesh. He also said, "They [Rohingyas] are neither recognised by Myanmar nor Bangladesh as their citizens and they are now stateless in the World of God".
Suu Kyi, also chairman of the National League for Democracy, said it was difficult to establish claims of both the countries about the identity of those alleged to be making cross-border movement.
However, she recognised that the process for establishment of the rule of law and human rights must start for bringing about lasting solution to the issue.
A former law minister, Khasru conveyed Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's greetings to Suu Kyi and invited her on Hasina's behalf to visit Bangladesh.
