Our rubber is only for condoms?

Our rubber is only for condoms?


Our rubber is only for condoms?

Posted: 22 Nov 2012 08:33 AM PST

We are just behind Thailand as the world's largest producer of rubber. Vietnam is third but could overtake us as we are now banking too much on oil palm.

No! Rank is now the issue. Its about the product itself, latex and rubber.

A report by Bloomberg yesterday said our rubber lifeline was boosted by higher demand in the production of rubber condoms and gloves.

Ouch! Is that so?

Aren't we also producing other rubber-based products like tyres, plastic, foam, etc?
On a Friday-to-Friday basis, the Malaysian Rubber Board sellers' official physical price for tyre-grade SMR 20 rose 13 sen to 848 sen per kg, while latex-in-bulk added 5.5 sen to 560.5 sen per kg.
The unofficial sellers' closing price for tyre-grade SMR 20 increased 9.5 sen to 849.5 sen per kg and latex-in-bulk gained 5.5 sen to 563.5 sen per kg.
Natural rubber prices had received some support over the past couple of months as Thailand introduced a government-backed deal to purchase 300,000 tonnes of Thai rubber at above-market rates in an effort to support farmers' incomes.

Prices in Thailand and Malaysia also received support after it was announced that the top three natural rubber producing countries (Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia) had made plans to cut production and natural rubber exports in an attempt to reverse recent price falls.

These countries are aiming to cut exports by 300,000 tonnes year-on-year in the six months to March 2013. In addition, they plan to reduce production by accelerating the felling of around 100,000 hectares of aging rubber trees over this period. If realised, this may lower exports by a further 150,000 tonnes

Rubber is a major part of many industries. Although synthetic rubber (oil derivatives) gets popular, natural rubber is still very much in demand, especially in tyre manufacturing.

I am not so sure if  condom industry is providing a new lifeline to our production or as to whether we are the world's largest producer of such a product.

Whatever it is, we have been surviving on rubber exports long before Merdeka and until the present day. We should continue listing it as one of our priorities.

The Farmer

Posted: 22 Nov 2012 06:07 AM PST


There was a farmer who had a horse and a pig.
One day, the horse became ill and he called the veterinarian, 
who said:
Well, your horse has a virus. 
He must take this medicine for three days. 
I'll come back on the 3rd day and if he's not better, 
we're going to have to put him down.

Nearby, the pig listened closely to their conversation.
The next day, they gave him the medicine and left. 
The pig approached the horse and said:
Be strong, my friend. 
Get up or else they're going to put you to sleep!

On the second day, they gave him the medicine and left. 
The pig came back and said:
Come on buddy, get up or else you're going to die! 
Come on, I'll help you get up. 
Let's go! One, two, three ...

On the third day, they came to give him the medicine 
and the vet said:
Unfortunately, we're going to have to put him down tomorrow.
Otherwise, the virus might spread and infect the other horses.
After they left, the pig approached the horse and said:
Listen pal, it's now or never! 
Get up, come on! Have courage! 
Come on! Get up! Get up! 
That's it, slowly! Great! 
Come on, one, two, three ... Good, good. 
Now faster, come on ... Fantastic! Run, run more!
Yes! Yay! Yes! You did it, you're a champion!

All of a sudden, the owner came back, 
saw the horse running in the field and began shouting:
It's a miracle! My horse is cured!

We must have a grand party. Let's kill the pig!!!! 

The Lesson: 

this often happens in the workplace. 
Nobody truly knows which employee actually deserves
the merit of success, 
or who's actually contributing the necessary support
to make things happen. 

Remember:
LEARNING TO LIVE WITHOUT RECOGNITION IS A SKILL!

If anyone ever tells you that your work
is unprofessional, remember:
Amateurs built the Ark [which saved all the species]
and professionals built the Titanic [most died tragically]

DON'T LOOK TO BECOME A PERSON OF SUCCESS, 

LOOK INSTEAD TO BECOME 

A PERSON WITH VALUES!

Barack Obama blunders again on the world stage

Posted: 22 Nov 2012 05:42 AM PST

It is only two weeks since his re-election, and his second term remains two months away, but Barack Obama is already blundering again on the world stage, with the kind of gaffes that would have been plastered on the front page of The New York Times if they had been committed by George W. Bush when he was in the White House. Obama's first term was littered with foreign policy gaffes, and there is every chance the second term will be more of the same. On his trip to Asia this week, President Obama struggled to pronounce the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, the most prominent human rights activist in the world. As The Associated Press reports (hat tip: Drudge Report):
As Obama stood next to the world's most recognized democracy icon, he mispronounced her name repeatedly. Ever gracious, Suu Kyi did not correct her American guest for calling her Aung YAN Suu Kyi multiple times during his statement to reporters after their meeting. Proper pronunciation for the Nobel laureate's name is Ahng Sahn Soo Chee.
Obama also "botched" his greeting of Burma's new president, according to the AP:
The meeting came after Obama met with Myanmar's reformist new President Thein Sein – a name he also botched. As the two addressed the media, Obama called his counterpart "President Sein," an awkward, slightly affectionate reference that would make most Burmese cringe. Note to presidential advisers: For future rounds of diplomacy, the president of Myanmar is President Thein Sein – on first and second reference.
In addition, as The Weekly Standard notes, Obama was quick to use the Burmese regime's preferred word "Myanmar", to describe Burma, which is not the term officially used by the US government, or by Burma's opposition activists.
President Barack Obama called Burma 'Myanmar' after a bilateral meeting with Thein Sein, the president of that country. From the pool report: Obama used the word "Myanmar," the preferred terminology of the former military government and currently nominally civilian government, in a spray following the bilat, rather than use "Burma," the former name of the country, and the one preferred by Aung San Suu Kyi as well as the name the U.S. uses. "I've shared with him the fact that I recognize this is just the first steps on what will be a long journey," Obama told reporters, with Thein Sein at his side. "But we think a process of democratic and economic reform here in Myanmar that has been begun by the president is one that can lead to incredible development opportunities.
It is rather embarrassing, as well as sad, that the leader of the free world can't even pronounce the name of the most famous human rights activist on the planet. Or that he is so quick to appease Burma's authoritarian regime by calling it "Myanmar". Barack Obama's gaffes demonstrate not only a marked lack of attention to detail and a high degree of amateurishness on the part of the White House, but also a disturbing willingness to curry favour with unsavoury regimes. Hardly a good omen for Obama's second term. Nile Gardiner in The Telegraph

"The Sphinx and Pyramids Must be Destroyed"

Posted: 22 Nov 2012 05:11 AM PST

by Khaled Abu ToamehNovember 13 2012

If the Egyptian army was unable to prevent the killing of 16 border guards by Muslim terrorists in its own base in the Sinai Peninsula, how is it expected to protect the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx?
Egypt's Muslim fundamentalists are now calling for the destruction of the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza under the pretext that Islam prohibits idols. If the extremists have no respect for human life, why should they care about a pyramid or a statue? Murjan Salem al-Johari, one of Egyptian leaders of the Saudi-inspired Wahhabis, otherwise referred to as the "Salafis," said that it was the duty of all Muslims to destroy the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx just as the Taliban destroyed two ancient statues of the Buddha in Afghanistan in 2001.

"All statues in Egypt must be destroyed," al-Johrai declared in a TV interview. "Muslims must implement the rules of Sharia and we will destroy the statues of Sphinx and the Pyramids because they are idols." The call for destroying the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx came after Muslim extremists destroyed, earlier this year, priceless Buddhist statues in the Maldives. In 2001, the Taliban destroyed irreplaceable historic artifacts in Afghanistan after its leader issued a fatwa [religious decree] against all "idolatrous images" of humans and animals.

The call for destroying the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza is yet another sign of the growing influence of the "Salafis" and other radical Islamic groups in Egypt in the aftermath of the "Arab Spring." There is not much that Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohamed Morsi, can do to stop these extremists from achieving their goal. Instead of directing his protests against the Muslim terrorists who are intimidating Egyptian Christians and threatening to blow up the Pyramids and the great Sphinx, Morsi is busy trying to stop Israel from defending itself against the rockets and missiles launched from the Gaza Strip by Hamas and other terror groups.

Morsi has thus far failed to liberate Sinai from the control of the extremists, who have turned the peninsula into a terror entity. If the Egyptian army was unable to prevent the killing of 16 border guards by Muslim terrorists in its own base in the Sinai, how is it expected to protect the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx?

[PANAS] Indonesia Buka Siasatan Kes 'Rogol' Rais Yatim!

Posted: 22 Nov 2012 10:11 AM PST


Kedutaan Besar Indonesia dan polis republik itu akan membuka siasatan kes pemerkosaan dan rasuah oleh Menteri Penerangan, Komunikasi dan Kebudayaan, Seri Rais Yatim terhadap bekas pembantu rumahnya, Robengah dalam masa terdekat.

Ketua Koordinator Jingga 13, Fariz Musa berkata, laporan tersebut diterima oleh kedutaan tersebut sebagai informasi baru untuk memulakan siasatan.

"Kementerian Kaunselor Kedutaan, Suryana Sastradiredja dan Polis Kerjasama Antarabangsa Kedutaan, Benny Iskandar telah mengesahkan untuk membuka siasatan terhadap Robengah dan juga majikannya iaitu Rais Yatim yang juga ahli parlimen Jelebu.

"Menurut mereka, kes ini akan dirujuk kepada pihak berkuasa anti rasuah di Indonesia," katanya selepas menyerahkan laporan permohonan penyiasatan dan tindakan undang-undang di Kedutaan Besar Indonesia, Jalan Ampang, hari ini.

Fariz berkata, Jingga 13 akan memantau perkembangan siasatan sehingga Rais dibawa ke muka pengadilan.

"Kita akan berhubung dari masa ke semasa dengan kedutaan tersebut, sama ada siasatan dibuat atau tidak.

"Kita juga tidak akan teragak-agak mengemukakan kes ini kepada Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) jika tidak ada sebarang tindakan diambil," katanya.

Menurut Fariz, laporan tersebut juga dibuat berhubung kemungkinan wujudnya ugutan terhadap Robengah.

"Jingga 13 mengesyaki wujud ugutan terhadap Robengah sehingga terpaksa berdiam diri kerana bimbang keselamatan beliau dan keluarga, walaupun hakikatnya telah diperkosa dan maruahnya dinodai.

"Robengah sendiri menyatakan bahawa beliau telah diberi amaran oleh orang besar di Malaysia yang melarang beliau dari membicarakan perkara ini," tegas Fariz.

Pada awal 2011, Malaysia digemparkan dengan pendedahan mengenai penglibatan Rais dalam kes rogol melibatkan pembantu rumahnya, Robengah yang berasal dari Indonesia.

Robengah sebelum ini mendakwa diperkosa majikannya di Malaysia, sepertimana laporan NGO Migrant Care pada 23 Julai 2007.

Bagaimanapun, beliau menafikan perkara itu dalam surat ditandatangani bertarikh 7 Januari 2011, menyatakan tidak menghadapi masalah sewaktu bekerja di Malaysia.

Dalam lawatan Jingga 13 ke Banjanegara Oktober lalu mendapati Robengah hidup mewah dengan rumah dianggar bernilai RM100,000, walaupun beliau dan suami tidak bekerja.

Pelbagai pihak termasuk KEADILAN sebelum ini membuat laporan polis berhubung kes itu namun sehingga kini, tiada siasatan dilakukan. -jalanpulang


[DEDAH] Kerajaan Beli Kamera Perangkap Laju 10 Kali Lebih Mahal

Posted: 22 Nov 2012 04:54 AM PST

Audit perlu siasat KDN bayar 10 kali ganda beli kamera perangkap laju

KUALA LUMPUR 22 November: Audit terbuka perlu dilakukan terhadap Kementerian Dalam Negeri (KDN) berhubung pembelian kamera perangkap laju yang meningkat sepuluh kali ganda dari harga asal, kata Ahli Parlimen Pokok Sena, Datuk Mahfuz Omar.

Beliau merujuk jawapan bertulis KDN kepada Ahli Parlimen Jerai, Firdaus Jaafar bahawa Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) dibekalkan kamera perangkap laju sejak 1995 dengan jumlah terkini 124 unit.

Ia meliputi model Laser Digicam berjumlah 85 dengan harga RM173,925 seunit, manakala bagi model Laser Trucam berjumlah 39 unit dengan harga RM223,500 seunit.

"Kontrak-kontrak kerajaan ini sangat diragui.

Siasatan perlu dibuat, lebih-lebih lagi sekiranya diberi secara runding terus (awarded tender). Kita tak mahu ada salahguna dari peruntukan KDN," tegasnya kepada Keadilan Daily.

Sementara itu, Timbalan Ketua Polis Trafik Bukit Aman, ACP Mohd Fuad Abd Latiff dilapor menyatakan harga kamera had laju model LTI 20-20 TruCam hanya kira-kira USD 6,000 (RM17,000) seunit.

"Ada sesuatu yang tak kena. Kalau diaudit Jabatan Audit Negara, pasti ada (penemuan salahguna), sebab Jabatan Audit sebelum ini pernah menemui pembelian barang oleh agensi kerajaan yang harganya meningkat berpuluh kali ganda," jelas Mahfuz.

Beliau membandingkan sebut harga lebih murah dibeli pihak berkuasa Amerika Syarikat, iaitu di Montana USD 4,995 (RM15,292.59) dan Idaho USD5,057.44 (RM15,483.84) bagi seunit kamera Laser Trucam.

Manakala bagi kamera Laser Digicam yang dibeli pihak berkuasa Delaware berharga USD 6,378 (RM19,526.88).

"Kenapa perbezaan harga begitu ketara? Kita faham kalau jenama tak sama. Tapi tak masuk akal kalau begitu jauh," katanya. -KD

Govt paid 10 times more for speed cameras

KUALA LUMPUR: An opposition MP today claimed Putrajaya may have paid 10 times more than the original price for its laser speed cameras.

Pokok Sena MP Mahfuz Omar, speaking in Parliament today, cited quotations on the same cameras made for three states in the US which showed remarkable differences in prices and called on the government to explain.

In a written reply to Jerai PAS lawmaker Mohd Firdaus Jaafar, Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein had said on Monday that his ministry had paid RM173,925 per unit of Laser Digicam and RM223,500 per unit of Laser Trucam.

Meanwhile, Montana had allegedly paid only US$4,995 (RM15,292.59) per unit while Idaho paid US$5,057.44 (RM15,483. 84) per unit for Laser Trucam and Delaware paid US $6,378 (RM19,526.88) per unit of Laser Digicam.

The prices quoted also included services and warranty. Some of the states were also offered discounts for wholesale purchases.

The police have been supplied with speed cameras in stages since 1995 and the total number of cameras to date is 124 units.

Speaking to reporters, Mahfuz said Putrajaya must disclose the procurement process to avoid any allegations of corruption since the Najib administration had failed to explain similar discrepancies constantly found in contracts involving the government.

"Was it done through open tender? They must answer all this".

The ruling coalition is now struggling to deflect accusations of foul play in its move to implement the AES, which detractors claimed were aimed at enriching some people.

The two firms awarded the contract to implement the enforcement system — ATES Sdn Bhd and Beta Tegap — will spend between RM300 million and RM400 million each to set up traffic cameras at 831 "black spots" nationwide.

Both ATES and Beta Tegap are entitled to RM16 per valid summons for the first five million issued. They will then split the remaining revenue evenly with the government up to a cap of RM270 million each.

The firms will each receive 7.5% from the remaining revenue and the government will keep the rest.

Pakatan Rakyat has suggested that the companies are linked to the MCA and Umno but this has been vehemently denied.

Parliament yesterday passed an estimated expenditure Bill for the Transport Ministry which opposition lawmakers claimed were meant for the installation of the AES.

It was passed after two votes were held following a heated debate on the controversy with the ruling coalition beating its counterparts in both polls.

What Are You Looking For? *UPDATED*

Posted: 22 Nov 2012 03:14 AM PST

As some of you might have noticed, I took my blog off the radar this afternoon for a few hours. Why?

There is one particular reader who visits my blog on an on-off basis. Previously, the max number of pages this person read was 63 pages at one go, sometimes 57 or 53 pages. Abnormal right?

After an absence of a few months, this reader came again yesterday and today.

From Wed 21 Nov,21:23:14 p.m. till Thu 22 Nov, 7::47:49 p.m., this person went through  202 of my blog posts.

TOTAL TALLY: 

Wednesday 21st November: 66 posts from 9:23pm to 11: 49 p.m.

Thursday 22nd November: 43 blog posts from 9:04am to 1:13pm and 2:31pm to 3:57pm.
     93 blog posts from 7:36:25 p.m. to 8:57:26p.m.


The following screenshot can only show 202 of the pages read due to the time difference cut off.
To me, this is most unusual. And abnormal. And I am thoroughly puzzled because I don't think my blog is that interesting to warrant a check of 202 pages, some lasting only seconds as can be seen from the screenshots at the end of this post.

Whoever you are, if you are looking for any particular article, please write to me at:

writetomws (at) hush dot ai

I will be most happy to send the specific article/s to you. It would save you a lot of time this way.

The same applies to anyone who is looking for an old article of mine and cannot find it.

I do apologise because as a retiree, I am old and forgetful so I sometimes forget to tag my posts or worse still, put the wrong tag. Hence, you may not be able to find what you are looking for.

So please feel free to send me a request and I will be happy to comply.

Just a note of clarification:

I do not blog on politics any more and will never write on political issues ever again.

Reason:

1. I have come to my senses, given up my political idealism and have returned to the normal world.

2. My priorities are:

a) Family
b) Health
c) Business
d) Real Friends

So, if you want to know what I think of the current political landscape, I have nothing to say because I do not even read the local news.

To my regular readers who have been coming to my blog even though I have not updated it for a few days, I want to say thank you.

I am very busy at the moment and will update normally when the dust settles.

In the mean time, please take care and may the God whom you believe in bless and guide you always.

Whoever you are, why are you just refreshing the page? Please do not mess up my blog statistics. Tell me what you want and I will send it to you.

Look at the following screenshots and see the unusual pattern of behaviour.

Di Johor, Penduduk & Kontraktor Bergaduh Kerana Air

Posted: 22 Nov 2012 02:45 AM PST


Johor Bahru – Niat asal 20 penduduk dari Kampung Semangat mendapatkan penjelasan mengenai masalah air yang dihadapi mereka daripada pihak kontraktor berakhir dengan adegan pergaduhan.

Pada peringkat awal, keadaan terkawal apabila beberapa penduduk cuba berbincang cara baik dengan kontraktor mengenai saluran paip bocor di perumahan mereka, sekitar jam 10 pagi semalam.

Bagaimanapun, situasi menjadi tegang hingga menimbulkan pergaduhan.

Menceritakan tercetusnya kejadian, salah seorang penduduk, Wong Yong Pau, 61, memberitahu, kelmarin kira-kira jam 11 pagi lebih 20 penduduk terputus bekalan air.

"Kami dapati ada saluran paip dibocorkan. Salah seorang penduduk menghubungi Syarikat Air Johor (SAJ) untuk melaporkan keadaan itu tetapi difahamkan ia bukan berpunca daripada jabatan itu.

"Kami jadi tidak puas hati, kerana sebelum ini pernah terjadi perkara sama membabitkan hampir 50 penduduk.

"Masalah tiada air tidak pernah terjadi sebelum ini, namun sejak kerja-kerja pembersihan di kawasan ini dilakukan kami menghadapi masalah," katanya pada sidang media, semalam.

Yong Pau mendakwa, dia turut menjadi mangsa apabila ditumbuk di bahagian muka ketika cuba meleraikan pergaduhan yang turut membabitkan beberapa penduduk.

"Pihak berkenaan semakin agresif hingga beberapa penduduk yang sudah berumur turut jadi mangsa.

"Ada yang cedera di bahagian muka, kaki, tangan. Melihat perbalahan semakin serius, saya terus menghubungi pihak polis untuk mendapatkan bantuan," katanya.

Beliau berharap pihak berkuasa dan pihak berkaitan dapat memberi jaminan keselamatan serta membantu penduduk kampung yang musykil kewujudan pihak pemaju membangunkan kawasan mereka dengan memberi pampasan tidak munasabah.

"Hampir 30 tahun kami hidup aman di sini. Tiba-tiba ada surat datang bagi notis dan tempoh suruh kami berpindah. Apa yang saya dengar kami hanya dibayar sekitar RM3,000 hingga RM7,000 sahaja.

"Sekiranya kami benar-benar diarahkan pindah, kami minta mereka yang berkenaan tampil berbincang secara baik. Jangan cuba buat kami marah. Rosakkan tanaman kami, bocorkan paip air hingga bergaduh seperti ini," katanya.

Dalam pada itu, Ketua Dewan Pemuda Pas Johor, Suhaizan Kaiat berkata, dia akan membantu membawa perkara itu kepada pihak berkaitan malah mendakwa isu pampasan pernah diutarakan kepada Kerajaan Negeri, namun tiada reaksi diterima.

Sementara itu, Ketua Polis Daerah Johor Bahru Utara, Asisten Komisioner Ruslan Hassan ketika dihubungi berkata, seramai 15 orang termasuk kontraktor ditahan untuk membantu siasatan mengikut Seksyen 147 Kanun Keseksaan kerana merusuh.

"Manakala lima yang cedera ringan telah dihantar ke Hospital Sultanah Aminah untuk mendapatkan rawatan sebagai pesakit luar. Kita masih menyiasat punca sebenar kejadian," katanya.

Ulasan GB

Bukan di Kelantan atau di Selangor yang UMNO BN sentiasa manipulasikan berita mengenai air, tetapi apa yang berlaku kini ialah di negeri Johor, negeri yang dikatakan kubu kuat UMNO.BN.

Demikianlah hukum kebenaran dan keadilan berlaku - dulang paku serpih, nak mengata negeri orang, rupanya negeri dia yang lebih.


Tangisan Yang Lama Untuk Rakyat Palestin..

Posted: 21 Nov 2012 07:20 PM PST

We know the war between Israel and Palestine will never end.
These two sides will never stop murdering each other.
While we Muslims believe that the Palestinians have been fighting for their lives and homeland, the Jews believe more or less they too are fighting for their survival.
The major difference is that the Jews are far more superior in their artillery and strategies.

They have extremely advanced weapons of war.
America loves them more than they care for the Palestinians.
The Gaza folks are largely defended by brave fractional fighters who cannot unite under one roof.

They fire at Israel without coordinating in sync with each other.
Saudi Arabia pulak appears to be helpless despite the fact that it is our leader in the Muslim world.

When will our Arab leaders unite in the strongest ever bloc and race to protect our Muslim brothers and sisters from being cleansed and slaughtered from the face of the earth?

The Arab world have the oil weapon..
Surely they know what to do.
I am just a Muslim observer..don't ask me what to do..if the oil reservoirs were mine, maybe I can give excellent, realistic ideas.

We want the war to stop once and for all.
No more killing of Jews and enough of our weepings for countless of innocent Palestinians.

The King of Saudi Arabia should start showing his true leadership in our Islamic world.
May Allah SWT wake him up and make him roar loudly (not meoww) to the rescue now.
Stop being meek and diplomatic..no more dilly-dallying.



 Tengok video ni..then kita boleh faham a bit more of the history as to how the nightmare started for the very unlucky Palestinians..
painfully sad..kesian sungguh.
Semoga Allah SWT melindungi umat Islam yang dianiaya..Ameen

Bengladesh smashed short sighted Aung San Suu Kyi on Rohingya

Posted: 21 Nov 2012 11:20 PM PST

B'desh, Suu Kyi clash on Rohingya

The Bangladesh government on Sunday rejected comments by Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi suggesting that stateless Muslim Rohingyas may be illegal Bangladeshi migrants.

Myanmar has been rocked by two outbreaks of fighting between Buddhists and Rohingyas since June that have left 180 people dead and more than 110,000 crammed into makeshift camps.

Suu Kyi said last week that illegal crossing of the shared border with Bangladesh had to be stopped "otherwise there will never be an end to the problem".

The foreign ministry in Dhaka said the Rohingya Muslims have been living in Myanmar's western state of Rakhine for centuries and they could not be Bangladeshi as the country was only founded in 1971.

"The Ministry wishes to express surprise at such comments since these are clearly at variance from the position of the Myanmar Government," it said in a statement.

"There is… no reason to ascribe Bangladesh nationality to these people," it said, adding that since 1971 there had been influxes of Rohingya into Bangladesh from Myanmar due to "internal situations in their homeland".

Suu Kyi has faced criticism for her muted response to the ethnic violence in Myanmar and the displacement of many Rohingyas, who are described by the United Nations as among the world's most persecuted minorities.

Barack Obama will on Monday become the first US president to visit formerly isolated Myanmar, which has recently introduced major political reforms.
