FBSHApost@26 November 2016: "Sovereignty is not a license to kill" - Gareth Evans

We can celebrate the recent decisions in Malaysia & Indonesia to condemn ethnic cleansing in Myanmar and called the Ambassador to explain but we are still far from stopping ethnic cleansing, crime against humanity or what is referred to by the international community the conditions of genocide. 

Myanmar has to be brought to the mainstream of what democracy is all about. It's not right for any country to hide behind the cloak of non- interference and sovereignty. Gareth Evans, former FM of Australia the main person who crafted the R2P principle said "mass atrocities" cannot be universally ignored and "sovereignty is not a license to kill".
