‘RE­VIEW ASEAN STA­TUS’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

UMNO Youth has de­manded Myan­mar’s Asean mem­ber­ship be re­viewed over the vi­o­lence against Ro­hingyas. Its chief, Khairy Ja­malud­din, said the cruel treat­ment of the Ro­hingya com­mu­nity is in­hu­mane and un­ac­cept­able. “The prin­ci­ple of non­in­ter­fer­ence is void when there is largescale eth­nic cleans­ing in an Asean mem­ber state. We also de­mand the Myan­mar gov­ern­ment take im­me­di­ate ac­tion to stop all forms of this bru­tal­ity at once,” he said at the Umno gen­eral assem­bly here yes­ter­day.
