Myanmar: Suu Kyi after her return from ICJ: Has it enhanced her position?

Paper No. 6527                Dated 23-Dec-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

Suu Kyi returned from the Hague on 14th December.  She was received at the airport by enthusiastic colleagues and the people that included Members of Parliament, Locals, teachers and students.  Significantly, no Senior Army Official was present.

At the court, in her final submission, Suu Kyi said that the case filed by Gambia should be dismissed or alternatively, the provisional measures requested by Gambia should be dismissed. 

Myanmar- Suu Kyi at The Hague:

Paper No. 6522               Dated 12- Dec-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

It turned out that the State Councilor Suu Kyi did not take any Army Representative in her team to the Hague to defend Myanmar’s case in the ICJ despite speculations to the contrary and the Army’s open desire to be included in the team. Perhaps, she wanted to give the impression that she has acted on her own and  not at the insistence of the Army.

Myanmar-International Pressure and Consequent China’s Gains:

Paper No. 6436                      Dated  7-Oct-2018
By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan
 
Of late, the media in Myanmar is full of articles of possible Coup, failure of the Government,  the international pressure on the Rohingya Issue and consequent bad relations between the Tatmadaw and the Civilian Government. The inference being made out is that if the Government does not act, the possibility of a coup cannot be ruled out!

Bangladesh- Protests of Students: Need for Caution?

Paper No. 6405     Dated 9-Aug-2018
By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan
 
A bad motor accident involving the death of two students, followed by violent protests by students, inept handling of the protests by the Government and an indiscreet statement by the shipping and transport minister making light of the accident- all added up to an explosive situation in Dhaka and other major cities in Bangladesh.  And this was when the parties were gearing up for National elections towards the end of the year!

United States-Russia Relations- Domestic Debate vs National Security

Myanmar- Pressure on Civilian Government uncalled for:

Paper No. 6392 .   Dated 26-June-2018

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan.

It is noticed that the UN and some Western Countries are putting undue pressure on the civilian leadership in Myanmar thus straining the delicate and cautious relationship between the civilian government led by Suu Kyi and the Tatmadaw (the Army). The problem relates to the events in Rakhine State and the exodus of nearly six to seven hundred thousand Rohingyas to Bangladesh.
