Reactions to speech by Myanmar's Suu Kyi on violence in Rakhine State

EXODUS Rohingya Muslims walk to the shore after arriving on a boat from Myanmar to Bangladesh

Myanmar's civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi broke her silence on the Rohingya crisis Tuesday, in a speech aimed at appeasing an worldwide community horrified by army-led violence which the United Nations describes as "ethnic cleansing".

Myanmar's Rohingya crisis has escalated over the past three weeks, with the United Nations estimating more than 400,000 Rohingya Muslims having fled the hostility in Rakhine to Bangladesh.

Rohingya Muslims, who crossed over recently from Myanmar into Bangladesh, stand in a queue to receive food being distributed near Balukhali refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017.

Addressing the council on its new fact-finding mission on Myanmar two months after becoming its chairman, Darusman cited two main points from Suu Kyi's speech earlier Tuesday: The "categorical readiness" of Myanmar's government to accept returnees once procedures are worked out, and its readiness to be "globally scrutinized by the worldwide community".

"Su Kyi would not solve Rohingya issue at the expense of her political goal", he bemoaned, urging the global community to help the minority gain Myanmar citizenship.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson convened the meeting with Haley, Burma's national security adviser and deputy foreign minister, and other senior officials.

Britain is among the countries that have urged Myanmar's political leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, to halt the violence against the Muslim minority group.

A note from Human Rights Watch's Myanmar researcher, posted on Twitter yesterday before Aung San Suu Kyi spoke, painted a very different picture.

"There has been much concern around the world with regard to the situation in Rakhine", she said.

The leader further added, "We would like to find out why this exodus is happening, would like to talk to the people who have fled".

The rights group blasted Suu Kyi for remaining "silent about the role of the security forces", whom they have accused of being "engaged in a campaign of ethnic cleansing".

Many reported that their villages had been burned down and that those who stayed were killed.

"We continue to hear reports of violence and suffering", Haley said afterward.

When asked what type of allegations and counter-allegations Suu Kyi was referring to, the journalist said, "I think she was asking to not exaggerate the Rohingya issue".

Although India has traditionally received refugees with open arms, the centre has called for the expulsion of Rohingya refugees, terming them as a threat to the nation.

The violence erupted in late August when the army retaliated against co-ordinated attacks by Rohingya militants.

She said she it would be helpful to understand why conflict did not break out everywhere.
