Myanmar government leader Aung San Suu Kyi says she believes her country could have handled the Rohingya crisis ‘better’ but insists the international community is ignoring other minority groups who are also under threat in the region. When asked about the seven-year sentences given to two Reuters journalists who were reporting on the violence in Rakhine state, she says that their imprisonment had nothing to do with them being journalists and they have the right to an appeal. The former Nobel peace prize winner was talking at the World Economic Forum on Asean in Hanoi.
