Kofi Annan led Rakhine commission released its interim report

Thursday, March 16, 2017 - 12:15

Let me make a few introductory remarks on our report.

First, we should  accept that the nature of the crisis facing Rakhine state has changed due to the attacks of 9 October and the subsequent security operations.

This has led to investigations and reports by the United Nations and human rights agencies. However, we as the Advisory Commission are guided by our mandate to focus mainly on long-standing obstacles to peace and development in Rakhine State.
