UN chief welcomes commission probing violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state PDF Print E-mail
UNITED NATIONS, Aug 18 (APP): UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has welcomed the establishment by Myanmar of a 27-member Commission to investigate the recent violence in the country’s state of Rakhine, according to his spokesperson. The move was announced Yangon by President Thein Sein, who earlier rejected UN calls for an independent inquiry.“This Commission is comprised of a representative cross-section of national figures in the country,” the secretary-general spokesperson said in a statement.

“It could make important contributions to restoring peace and harmony in the state and in creating a conducive environment for a more inclusive way forward to tackle the underlying causes of the violence, including the condition of the Muslim communities in Rakhine.”
Recent tensions between Buddhists and Rohingya Muslims in the western state of Rakhine left at least a dozen civilians dead and hundreds of homes destroyed, as well as at least 64,000 people displaced. In a report after a recent visit to Myanmar, Tomas Ojea Quintana, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation, said the situation in Rakhine state was serious, and called for a probe into the targeting of Rohingya Muslims by government forces during the clashes, Ban’s spokesperson added that the Commission will “be integral to any reconciliation process” and the United Nations is ready to provide assistance in a “constructive spirit to Myanmar’s reform and reconciliation efforts, and to help that country overcome its imminent challenges.”
