UN: Myanmar decries resolution on human rights abuses against Rohingya Muslims

Myanmar rejected a United Nations resolution adopted at its general assembly in New York on Friday condemning human rights abuses against Rohingya and other minorities. The 193 UN member body voted 134-9 with 28 abstentions in favour of the resolution. Reacting to the resolution, Myanmar's Ambassador to the UN Hau Do Suan said, «This draft resolution is yet another classic example of double... Еще standards, selective and discriminatory application of human rights norms on a member country. It is purposefully crafted to exert unwarranted political pressure on Myanmar». He further added, «The draft resolution, as it stands, will sow seeds of mistrust and will create further polarisation of different communities in the region». In 2017 Rohingya militants carried out a series of attacks against Myanmar security forces, killing 12 police officers. It triggered a crackdown by Myanmar's military, with widespread reports of indiscriminate killings, arson, looting and rape. More than 730,000 Rohingya fled the country.
