Suu Kyi Says Rohingya Mass Grave Investigation 'Positive'

According to news report, Kono made the comments in a joint news conference with Myanmar's de facto, leader Aung San Suu Kyi, in the capital Naypyitaw.

The request comes after Myanmar military admitted that some of its soldiers were involved in the murder of 10 captured Rohingya men in western Rakhine state in September a year ago and buried them in a mass grave near Inn Din village in Maungdaw township.

Aung San Suu Kyi stressed the importance of the rule of law and said the military would take responsibility. She added: "I believe our investigation will prevent such things from happening again".

Kono arrived in Rakhine state on board a Myanmar military helicopter on Saturday as the first minister from a foreign country to visit the region.

Hundreds of thousands of the Rohingya have fled to neighboring Bangladesh since fighting broke out between Rohingya militants and security forces previous year.
