Myanmar sought clear evidence against allegations of the genocide


The National Security Adviser of Myanmar Thaung Tun has termed the allegations of genocide and ethnic cleansing against Rohingya people in Rakhine as `horrible` and urged to bring clear evidence against the allegations.

Thaung Tun said reporters in Geneva on Thursday, "We often hear many complaints about the incidents of ethnic killings and genocide in Myanmar. If there is a complaint then we would like to get clear evidence. A large part of Muslim community living in Rakhine still remains. If genocide was conducted, then everyone would be deported."

Meanwhile, a recent report from Myanmar`s influential media, Irrawaddy said 90 percent of Rakhine`s Rohingya population had fled to escape from ethnic cleansing.

Although they asked for proper evidence, the D-Facto Government has not yet allowed the international community including the United Nations to enter Rakhine to investigate the incident. Nevertheless, Rakhine`s ethnic killings and genocide have been found in the satellite images and the search of media.
