Veteran U.S. mediator Bill Richardson insisted that Aung San Suu Kyi remains Myanmar's best hope for change, this statement came days after he got into a fight with the Nobel laureate and quit an worldwide panel advising her government on the Rohingya crisis.
Duterte said he had a chance to talk to Suu Kyi, Myanmar's state counselor, and told the latter not to mind her critics.
" He said he was "taken aback" by the disparagement of the media, the United Nations, human rights groups and the global community and alarmed by the "lack of sincerity" with which the issue of Rohingya citizenship was discussed".
"And I think Aung San Suu Kyi has brought this upon herself, the constant disparagement of the global community, which I think can be helpful to her".
Suu Kyi, known as a democracy and human rights icon, has disappointed many for her silence over the persecution of Rohingyas in her country. "I think she's developed a classic bubble".
"She blames all the problems that Myanmar is having on the global media, on the United Nations, on human rights groups, on other governments, and I think this is caused by the bubble that is around her, by individuals that are not giving her frank advice", Richardson, once a close friend of Suu Kyi, said Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press in Yangon, Myanmar's largest city.

Aung San Suu Kyi is in the center of criticism due to her supposed inaction to the massive crackdown on Rohingya Muslims who are treated by Buddhists as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.

But he declined to disclose details of his conversation with the chief diplomat in Donald Trump's administration.
