Myanmar: Rohingya Issue- Getting more and more complicated

Paper No. 6354                                      Dated 08-Mar-2018

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

The Rohingya problem which was a local  bilateral issue between Myanmar and Bangladesh and had then become a regional issue with the Rohingya refugees spreading out of Bangladesh. 

It is now getting into international dimensions and one cannot but agree with the statement of A.M.A Muhith, the Finance Minister of Bangladesh that the Rohingya repatriation back to Myanmar will never succeed!

Myanmar: Sanctions will only slow down democratic Transition

Paper No. 6321                                  Dated 16-Nov-2017

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

In his one day stop at the capital of Myanmar on 15 November 2017, US Secretary of State Tillersen ruled out the much expected announcement of general sanctions against Myanmar.  Instead, he called for an independent investigation into credible reports of the army initiated violence against the Rohingyas. He was wise enough to point out that by imposing sanctions alone the crisis cannot be expected to be considered to be over.
