Myanmar leader's visit to Dutch parliament canceled

The government leader of Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi, will not be visiting the Tweede Kamer on Friday as planned. The meeting between her and the Foreign Affairs committee had to be canceled due to "unexpected changes" in her program, the Tweede Kamer, the lower house of Dutch parliament, announced.

Suu Kyi is currently in The Hague due to a lawsuit that Gambia filed at the International Court of Justice against Myanmar, accusing the country of genocide against the Rohingya people. Dutch parliamentarians wanted to use this opportunity to meet with her and talk about events past and present.

The Foreign Affairs committee planned to discuss the background of the genocide charges Gambia pressed against Myanmar with Suu Kyi, as well as the current situation in her country.
