Suu Kyi tells United States lawmaker she seeks aid for Rohingya

The UN Security Council is deeply concerned about the situation in Myanmar where Rohignya civilians are exposed to extreme violence, UN Security Council President and Ambassador of Ethiopia to the United Nations Tekeda Alemu said on Wednesday.

The crisis has drawn global condemnation, with United Nations officials demanding Myanmar halt what they described as a campaign of ethnic cleansing that has driven almost 400,000 Rohingya to flee Rakhine state. It is important the global community speaks out in support of what we all know the expectation is in terms of the treatment of people regardless of their ethnicity. 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.

Meanwhile, Zaw Htay, a spokesman for Myanmar's Presidential Office, said the reason people abandoned their homes was because many were told to leave by family members who were involved in terrorist activities.

"I think nobody wants to see a return to military rule in (Myanmar), nobody wants to see a return of the generals", he said, adding that Nobel Peace Prize laureate Suu Kyi should use her moral capital to highlight the plight of the Rohingya.

"Violence in Myanmar has created a humanitarian catastrophe".

The Myanmar government "and State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi in particular, should condemn unequivocally all incitement to racial or religious hatred and combat social discrimination and hostilities against the Rohingya minority", said the resolution. Some 400,000 have fled violence, crimes and horrors that are inhumane...

Guterres repeated his call for "an effective action plan" to address the root causes of the situation, which he said he been left to fester for decades and has now escalated beyond Myanmar's borders, destabilizing the region.

On September 8, over 300 Muslims also protested in Tokyo, Japan in front of Myanmar embassy over Rohingya affairs of which Myanmar nationals there also staged a counter-protest against it.
