ASEAN should be brave enough to remind Yangoon on the rights and plight of the Rohingyas. The Rohingyas are the legitimate habitant in the Arakan and nearby areas and they had been staying there for hundreds of years and they are recognized as the owner of the land.
Baseless allegations such as Rohingyas are the migrators from Bangladesh are the common escapism sentence that will be used by the SPDC regime to allow their brutality and harrassment to these Rohingyas.
The leaders of ASEAN, I’m sure have enough information and in-fact some of them had the opportunity to see the truth of what this SPDC regime had done to their own people.
ASEAN is not a forum only for the leaders, it is also a forum for us, the people of ASEAN. People of ASEAN cannot tolerate such a notorius government who doesnt have any guts to accept their own people.
ASEAN should push Myanmar harder on the issue of human rights, democracy and tolerancy. The current development on democracy in Myanmar is just a lip service. The foreign Minister of ASEAN is wasting the tax-payers money in Senggigi if they cant do anything better than pressuring the SPDC regime to uphold the basic human rights to its own people.
