Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing received the Ambassador of Japan to Myanmar Mr. Tateshi Higuchi in Bayintnaung Guest House, Nay Pyi Taw yesterday afternoon.
During the meeting, the ambassador said the government of Japan understands the difficulty Myanmar faces with regards to the events in northern Rakhine State, and supports the security matters conducted with a positive attitude by the government and Tatmadaw. Assistance will be continued for Myanmar’s nation-building effort without a changing of stance. Some facts were different from what the Myanmar government and Tatmadaw is actually doing, and suggested that Myanmar needs to let the world know of the actual situation in Rakhine State. The Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services said displaced Rakhines, local ethnic nationals, Hindus and Bengalis were being provided with assistance and medical treatment.
“There is no ethnic cleansing in the country and, according to photographic evidence, Muslim villages can be seen departing calmly rather than fleeing in terror. They didn’t accept the words of government administrative officials not to leave. Those who fled to Bangladesh will be accepted back according to the bilateral agreement of 1993. But when they are in Myanmar, they need to obey and respect the existing law said the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services”, the Commander in Chief said.
