Myanmar faces 'defining moment', must stop the violence

Extending 'all forms of support' to Rohingyas: Shah

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and the Security Council on Wednesday urged Myanmar to end the violence, which he said was best described as ethnic cleansing.

"We are very much active in relation to the Rohingya crisis but unfortunately it has not been easy because the government of Myanmar until now has been completely deaf to our requests", Guterres said on September 15. It's been characterized by many as ethnic cleansing.

"I think it is important that the global community speak out in support of what we all know the expectation is for the treatment of people regardless of their ethnicity", he added. "That must stop", he said.

Since last month, some 389,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh following a surge in violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state.

"It is a defining moment, in many ways, for this new emerging democracy, although it is a power-sharing arrangement", Tillerson said. We all clearly understand that.

Tillerson stated that Suu Kyi has found herself in a hard and complex situation and that Myanmar's democracy is facing a defining moment. "I think many people around the world share that admiration". China and India might have commercial, economic and strategic interests in Myanmar besides New Delhi's general apathy and callousness towards Muslims but both Beijing and New Delhi must realise that by supporting Myanmar they would be doing injustice to a hapless community.

"Violence in Myanmar has created a humanitarian catastrophe".

archiA trade delegation from the European Parliament decided on Thursday to postpone a planned visit to Myanmar due to the recent violent crackdown on Rohingya Muslims.

During a phone call, Trudeau stressed Suu Kyi's role as a "moral and political leader" for the nation, as he voiced his "deep concerns over the situation in Rakhine state for Rohingya Muslims", his office said in a statement.

UNICEF said on Thursday that about 400,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar since August 25, some 60 percent of them children.

Tens of thousands of refugees are trapped on the border into Bangladesh without basic food and medicine amid operations by the Myanmar military, which have already killed hundreds.
