Myanmar army's admission of killings a 'positive step': Suu

Myanmar army's admission of killings a 'positive step': Suu

Suu Kyi made the comments Friday during a joint news conference with Japan's foreign minister.

On August 25, the Myanmar Army had launched a military offensive after Rohingya rebels had mounted a series of attacks on multiple government posts.

The request comes after Myanmar military admitted that some of its soldiers were involved in the murder of 10 captured Rohingya men in western Rakhine state in September a year ago and buried them in a mass grave near Inn Din village in Maungdaw township.

"Japan is willing to help [the Myanmar government] make the country a place where communities from different faiths can live together peacefully", Kono said to the village chief.

Many refugees start at transit centers set up along the Bangladesh-Myanmar border before they are brought to the main refugee camps in Cox's Bazar.

"In the end, rule of law in the country is the responsibility of that country".

Saturday's report says Suu Kyi said: "It is a positive indication that we are taking the steps to be responsible".

In response to Myanmar's military's admission of killing Rohingyas, Amnesty International said on Thursday that the confession is just the "tip of the iceberg".

ARSA, the Rohingya militant group, "wholeheartedly" welcomed the army's admission saying it validated the wider allegations of abuses including a campaign of rape and murder and the systematic torching of villages. It said the 10 were "terrorists" who threatened villagers.

The United Nations has called the violence against civilians "ethnic cleansing", but the Myanmarese Government rejected the claims.

The Rakhine state is home to a majority of Muslims in Myanmar, who have been denied citizenship and long faced persecution in the Buddhist-majority country, especially from the extremists.
