Myanmar/Burma - Human Rights Watch report (April 22, 2013)
We have taken note of the Human Rights Watch report, which accuses the Burmese authorities of having carried out a campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingyas and reveals a number of disquieting facts. It is up to the Burmese authorities to shed full light on the communal violence that has been taking place in Rakhine State for a year now.
We hope that the report by the commission of inquiry established by President Thein Sein, which is due to be issued in the next few days, will provide clarification. France would like to see proposals aimed at re-establishing harmonious living conditions among the communities in Rakhine State, and at reaching, with respect to the status of the Rohingyas, a solution that ensures respect for human rights.
