Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi has defended her country against international criticism over an exodus of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims by saying most of their villages remain intact, and that it’s important to understand why conflict did not break out everywhere. Suu Kyi told foreign diplomats gathered in Naypyitaw on Tuesday that “more than half” of Rohingya villages were not affected by the violence. She invited the diplomats to visit those villages so they could learn, along with the government, “why are they not at each other’s throats in these particular areas”.
