Australia stages protest against Myanmar leader's visit


(MENAFN) Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi trip to Australia has triggered activists to form a protest in Sydney, while opposing the violence Rohingya Muslims are facing.

The decision for the leader to join the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) special meeting has drawn over 100 demonstrators in Sydney's Hyde Park opposing the idea.

ASEAN leading figures have received an appeal from a spokesperson for Australian Rohingya community to lend a hand in seeking "a durable and humane solution" to the crisis.

Spokesperson Sujauddin Karimuddin stated "we hope that the ASEAN leaders, including Australian government will take the right decision to defend human rights and to work continuously with Myanmar leaders and with Rohingya leaders to include them in the discussion to find a durable and humane solution. Not just what suits them."
