Violence in Myanmar must stop: Tillerson

Attacks by Rohingya militants on security posts last month triggered an army operation that has killed more than 400 people, destroyed over 6,800 houses and sent almost 400,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing to Bangladesh.

The humanitarian crisis overwhelming Myanmar - call it Burma if you must - is a blood stain on the reputation of Aung San Suu Kyi, the nation's de facto leader.

During a press conference at Lancaster house in London on Thursday, Tillerson stressed that the violence against the Rohingya, a stateless Muslim minority group, must stop.

"I yield to no one in my admiration of what she stood for and the way she fought for democracy", said Johnson, the foreign secretary, on Thursday at a joint press conference with U.S. secretary of state Rex Tillerson.

Replying a question about his views what is taking place in Myanmar and Bangladesh, and the behavior of Aung San Suu Kyi, Tillerson said this violence must stop; this persecution must stop.

The Southeast Asian nation's first civilian leader in decades has faced global condemnation for a lack of moral leadership regarding the Rohingya, victims of what the UN views as a campaign of ethnic cleansing. "I think many people around the world share that admiration". "We appreciate the hard and complex situation Aung San Suu Kyi finds herself in".

The number of Rohingya refugees pouring into Bangladesh since August 25 is nearing 400,000, and United Nations secretary general Antonio Guterres seems exasperated.

"Violence in Myanmar has created a humanitarian catastrophe".

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.

The refugees are fleeing a fresh security operation in which security forces and Buddhist mobs have killed men, women and children, looted homes, and torched Rohingya villages.

The Muslim Rohingyas have been fleeing from Myanmar (Burma) by the thousands.

The Myanmar authorities have targeted Rohinyga civilians after an insurgent group attacked police and military posts in the northern Rakhine state.
