Obama warns against repression of Muslims in Myanmar: Strait Times

NewsWorld365 NewsWorld365 , April 27, 2014

 

 US President Barack Obama warned on Sunday that ethnic and religious conflicts could move Myanmar in a “very bad direction.”

Mr Obama praised the “courageous process” of political reform taking place in a country formerly led by a military junta, but warned that democratisation after years of repression brought its own perils.

“Myanmar won’t succeed if the Muslim population is oppressed,” Mr Obama said at a “town hall” meeting during a visit to Muslim-majority Malaysia.

Mr Obama was referring to Myanmar’s Muslim Rohingya minority in Rakhine state which has been subject to persecution at the hands of Buddhist nationalists.
