Aung San Suu Kyi: Lack of peace, development causes irregular migration

Myanmar’s State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi said on Wednesday that lack of peace and lack of development are two main causes of the unprecedented scale of irregular migration in recent years.

While addressing at a UN General Assembly (GA) high-level debate, Suu Kyi said by building peace and development, durable solutions to the migration issue can be found.

On extremism and terrorism, Suu Kyi said lack of social and economic security are main causes to extremism and meanwhile lack of purpose or a sense of direction in life could also be a force that drives young people into extremist ideologies.

Representing Myanmar’s government, she ratified the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty-CTBT at United Nations headquarters.
