Japan's FM visits Rohingya village in Myanmar

Japan's FM visits Rohingya village in Myanmar

The acknowledgment is an indication that the country is ready to own responsibility for any breaches in rule of law, said Suu Kyi, after meeting Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kano, Efe news reported quoting the state media.

Aung San Suu Kyi, the de facto leader of Myanmar, on Saturday said that admission by the country's Army that it has participated in crimes against the Rohingyas is a positive step.

Asked about the admission on Wednesday by Myanmar's military that its security forces and Buddhist villagers killed 10 captured Rohingya during clashes past year, Suu Kyi stressed the importance of the rule of law and said the military will take responsibility.

After months of staunch denials of abuse, the army on Wednesday said a probe found four members of the security forces helped kill 10 Rohingya militant suspects at Inn Din village on September 2, leaving their bodies in a hastily dug pit.

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.

But the conflict area of Rakhine remains locked down to media, aid agencies and United Nations investigators.

The army, which is not under the control of the civilian government, launched a sweeping counteroffensive in northern Rakhine in response to Rohingya militant attacks on August 25, triggering an exodus of more than 650,000 Rohingya villagers to Bangladesh.

The Rohingya are reviled in Buddhist-majority Myanmar, where most are denied citizenship and described as "Bengalis" - or Muslim interlopers from Bangladesh.

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.
