US urges Myanmar to stop offensive, allow civilians to return

Posted September 20, 2017

For the first time ever, Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi broke her silence over the ongoing Rohingya crisis, saying that Myanmar was ready to verify refugees status process for those who wish to return.

However, the Nobel peace prize victor also sought to create an impression that the prevailing tensions in the Rakhine State were largely the result of violence initiated against the Myanmar security establishment by "armed Muslims and the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA)".

"There has been a call for the repatriation of refugees who have fled from Myanmar to Bangladesh", she said.

Amnesty did say it was "positive" to hear Suu Kyi condemn any human rights violations in Rakhine state - where most of the Rohingya live - but it criticised her for being silent on the security forces' alleged brutalities.
