Tillerson calls for an end to 'horrors' in Myanmar

Myanmar nationals in Japan protest against UN over Rakhine conflict

The festival comes as renewed violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state forces thousands of Rohingya

It's been characterised by many as ethnic cleansing.

But Tillerson and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who were addressing reporters at a joint press conference in London, stopped short of criticizing Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, or the government she oversees. "That must stop", he said.

"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.

Almost three weeks into a mass exodus of Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in Myanmar, thousands are still flooding across the border in search of help and safety in teeming refugee settlements in Bangladesh.

"We appreciate the hard and complex situation that Aung San Suu Kyi finds herself in", Tillerson said, alluding to the power sharing agreement that gives military leaders vast influence over the country's affairs, "and I think it is important that the global community speak out in support of what we all know the expectation is towards the treatment of people, regardless of their ethnicity".

Aung San Suu Kyi's attends a Myanmar parliament meeting on April 8, 2015.

NY (U.S.A.) Sept 14 (ANI): United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Wednesday reiterated his call for Muslims from Myanmar's Rakhine state to be granted nationality or at least a legal status that would allow them to lead a normal life, while also urging the worldwide community to help provide assistance for the almost 380,000 people who have fled into Bangladesh.

The refugees are fleeing a fresh security operation in which military forces and Buddhist mobs have killed men, women and children, looted homes and torched Rohingya villages. The government must recant its position on the status of the Rohingyas, who must be accorded the full citizenship rights.

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

The Rohingya group fighting in Myanmar's western region of denied any links to global terror groups, saying they have no ties to any terrorist groups.
