Reports: Myanmar rejects EU-tabled draft resolution on human rights
Myanmar has rejected a draft resolution on the situation of human rights in the country, tabled by the European Union (EU), according to Myanmarese media reports. The draft resolution was considered for action on Friday during the 37th regular session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva, writes Xinhua News citing Myanmarese media reports. According to the news outlet, before taking action on the draft resolution, U Htin Lynn, Myanmar’s permanent representative to the UN, made a statement rejecting the resolution – saying, some paragraphs of the draft are “highly intrusive and directly challenge the state sovereignty of Myanmar.” U Htin Lynn reportedly warned that the Myanmar government will not accept any endeavour “infringing on the state sovereignty of Myanmar” – saying, Myanmar is ready “to work with the international community in their constructive approaches that would help overcome national reconciliation, peace, development and humanitarian challenges” of the country. In December last year, the Myanmar representative also rejected another resolution of the UNHRC with regard to the Rohingya crisis, but pledged “efforts to address the challenges of Rakhine state.” The resolution was tabled by member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
