INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta- UI Hikmahanto Juwana's Professor of International Law affirmed that Rohingya's problem is not related to religion but the unclearness of Rohingya's citizenship status as a citizen of Myanmar for decades.

"Currently developing in Indonesia as if the problem happened to ethnic Rohingya as an interreligious problem, whereas the issue is not related to religion, but the non-recognition of ethnic Rohingya as a citizen of Myanmar for decades," said Hikmahanto Juwana in Jakarta, Tuesday (5 / 9/2017)

Another problem, he added, is the omission of the Government of Myanmar for the inhumane treatment of the security forces against Rohingyas resulting in the massive exodus of the ethnic group.

Various officials and world leaders have categorized this as ethnic cleansing and genocide which is an international crime.

He said the problem that happened in Myanmar is not also a bilateral problem between Indonesia and Myanmar.

"So far, the relationship between the two countries is fine and there is no collision whatsoever," he said.

Therefore, enthralling the ambassadorial ambassador or calling back the Indonesian Ambassador to Myanmar is not an appropriate action.

"The problem that occurred in Myanmar should not be the ammunition to delegitimize the Jokowi-JK government," he said.

He said the President had taken the necessary steps, but because of the huge problems, the current efforts by the Indonesian government seem inadequate.

"Of course the government continues to seek and seek a solution that the Myanmar government does not allow events that can be categorized as ethnic cleansing soon ends," he said.

Jokowi government action is very maximal when compared with a number of neighboring countries who from the beginning have stated will not accept refugees from ethnic Rohingya, he said.
