Yangon: Myanmar's army chief said the United Nations had no right to interfere in the sovereignty of the country, a week after UN investigators called on him and other top generals to be prosecuted for "genocide" against the Rohingya minority.

No country, organisation or group has the "right to interfere in and make decisions over sovereignty of a country", military-run newspaper Myawady reported commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing telling troops on Sunday, in his first public reaction since the damning UN report.
