Russia against intervention in Myanmar


PV International Desk : A Russian foreign ministry statement indicates that Moscow considers Rohingya crisis as an internal issue and is against any outside intervention.
Attempts at intervening in Myanmar’s “internal affairs” may have only one net effect – still deeper inter-religious discord, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday.
“It is essential to remember that the wish to intervene in the internal affairs of a sovereign state may merely bring about further inter-religious discord,” she said, according to Russian news agency Tass.
The statement came amid a global outcry against the latest atrocities committed against Rohingya Muslim minorities in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.
About 400,000 Rohingyas had fled to Bangladesh where another 400,000 are living for decades. The United Nations, the European Union and the United States have condemned the Burmese authorities for the atrocities they have committed.
