Myanmar: Current Developments and President Xi’s Visit: China Gains

Paper No. 6539                   Dated 12-Feb-2020

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

President Xi JinPing made a two-day visit to Myanmar on 17th and 18th of January.  Though the visit was declared as one to mark the 70th anniversary of the diplomatic ties between the two countries, the real reason for the visit appears to be to regain the momentum of the Chinese dominance in Myanmar which had shown some strains recently.

Myanmar- Suu Kyi at The Hague:

Paper No. 6522               Dated 12- Dec-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

It turned out that the State Councilor Suu Kyi did not take any Army Representative in her team to the Hague to defend Myanmar’s case in the ICJ despite speculations to the contrary and the Army’s open desire to be included in the team. Perhaps, she wanted to give the impression that she has acted on her own and  not at the insistence of the Army.

Paper No. 6518                      Dated 30-Nov-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

It all began with Gambia on behalf of the OIC filed a Law suit at the United Nation’s International Court of Justice (ICJ) accusing Myanmar of breaching the 1948 Un Genocide Convention through a military campaign in Rakhine State. The ICJ with great alacrity took up the issue immediately and fixed December 12th for detailed hearing in the case!

Myanmar: Ugly turn with a wave of international indictments on Rohingya Issue:

Paper No. 6514                     Dated 21-Nov-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

Myanmar is facing three major international justice initiatives, all at the same time in connection with the alleged crimes against the Rohingya community in Myanmar. There appears to be a concerted effort to corner Myanmar not only on the Rohingya issue, but also in other ethnic conflicts in Rakhine, Kachin and Northern Shan States!
