Ambassador Haley Delivers Remarks at a UN Security Council Meeting on Burma


“Only accountability for the crimes against Rohingya will serve the cause of peace in Burma. This is not about finger pointing. It is about accepting the realities of what happened so that healing and accountability can occur. We’ve all heard the excuses offered by those who have fought this briefing. They argue that the Security Council is not the appropriate place to discuss these atrocities. Our work, they say, is peace and security. Not human rights. But the forcible movement of over 700,000 people across borders is undeniably a matter of international peace and security.”

Ambassador Nikki Haley
