Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi has called on the people to be united for national development.
The State Counsellor made a televised address to mark the second anniversary of the launch of a democratically-elected government.
She, however, did not elaborate on how her government will deal with the issue of minority Rohingya refugees.
Ms Suu Kyi also said, the world’s focus is on the Rakhine state right now, but people also need to peacefully develop the country.
670,000 people are estimated to have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh from the western state after fighting broke out between Rohingya militants and Myanmar’s security forces last August.
