Suu Kyi has been a Burmese MP since July 2012 and the de facto Prime Minister since April 2016.
Rohingya have been fleeing Burma in their thousands since June 2012. The only thing she has said about the Rohingya in that time is that they do not exist.
Don “Corleone” Pramudwinai, Thailand’s Foreign Minister, suggested that she make the Rohingya an offer they can not refuse, but should take her time about it. In the interim, he offered Thailand’s continuing support provided trade and investment continued to make the crony capitalists in both countries even richer.
Suu Kyi is sometimes known as “Suckee” for her habit of sucking up to internationally famous political leaders. For at least a decade it has been impossible to call yourself a neo-liberal politician without having a selfie taken with Suckee. She has won numerous prestigious awards including the International Florists Association award for the politician with the most flowers in their hair, and the Nobel Prize for Genocide. With this sort of international support she has plenty of time to come up with the final solution of the Rohingya problem.
Like Kofi Annan, Private Tye has long been an admirer of the Asian Angel of democracy:
her love of the common people, her defense of a free press and journalists, her compassion for minorities her inspiration to the dispossessed her example to Thailand.
The story from the Bangkok Post (6 Jan):
Thailand's Foreign Minister, Don Pramudwinai, has spoken for the first time in defence of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, who is increasingly being accused worldwide of ignoring the plight of her country's Muslim minority in Myanmar's Rakhine state. Mr Don said he believes her civilian government is not ignoring the persecution of the Rohingya, but needs time to make the problems "right"
Mr Don, who in December attended a special meeting in Yangon with nine other foreign ministers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) to discuss the problem, said Ms Suu Kyi has shown her willingness to tackle the Rohingya issue with caution."The government of Myanmar is concerned [about the Rohingya problems], but has to be careful," Mr Don told the Bangkok Post.
Ms Suu Kyi, who is also the National League for Democracy (NLD) Party leader, told the meeting she is working on the "sensitive" issue, he said.
