Japan to Myanmar Conduct credible Rohingya probe

  • Print
AP, Tokyo  :
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told Myanmar's leader Tuesday that a credible investigation into alleged human rights violations against Rohingya Muslims is key to resolving tensions in the country's Rakhine state.
Abe told a joint news conference after holding
talks with Aung San Suu Kyi that Japan will support efforts by Myanmar to accommodate Rohingya who return home from refugee camps in neighboring Bangladesh.
"This problem is complicated and serious, and Japan will think with Myanmar and support its effort in resolving the problem," Abe said. "A credible investigation by the independent panel is particularly important."
Buddhist-majority Myanmar's military is accused of widespread rights violations, including rape, murder, torture and burning villages.
