Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi called on the government to increase security forces in restive Rakhine State.
In a joint statement, Suu Kyi together with MPs representing ethnic groups, also urged the government to be transparent on its policy regarding the conflict especially in relation to the 1982 Myanmar Citizenship Law.
“Everyone is responsible for respecting human rights without discriminating race and religion. It is necessary to peacefully seek results that can be accepted by both sides. The concerns of the Rakhine people must be recognised. Those who fuelled the fire behind the scene, whether individual or organisation, must be severely dealt with. These actions must be publicised,” the statement said.
The statement also called for prompt humanitarian aid for the affected parties in Rakhine.
Suu Kyi is the chairman of the parliament’s rule of law, stability and peace committee.
