The 27th Annual Meeting of Asia-Pacific Parliamentary forum discussed about Myanmar’s Rohingya issue, an official said.

Chheang Vun, spokesman and chairman of the National Assembly’s Foreign Affairs Commission, said on Tuesday evening that Rohingya issue was discussed on Tuesday.

“They discussed about the problem in Myanmar’s Rakhine state related to Rohingya people,” Mr Vun said. “It is related to the draft declaration requested by Canada, Indonesia, Malaysia and other countries.”

He said that Rohingya issue will also be scheduled to be discussed today.

“The problem in Myanmar is a sensitive one which has happened for about three or four years,” Mr Vun said, noting that the issue was in the past discussed at IPPA meeting in Singapore but it has not been solved.

Mr Vun said that the issue of South China Sea and peace in Korean Peninsula was also raised in the APPF meeting.
