Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has expressed concern over the attacks on Rohingya Muslims and other minorities in Myanmar and urged the country's leadership to end the violence.
The United Nations appealed on Thursday for massive help for almost 400,000 Muslims from Myanmar who have fled to Bangladesh, with concern growing that the number could keep rising, unless Myanmar ends what critics denounce as "ethnic cleansing". And Aung San Suu Kyi, however angry we may be at her right now, does not have the constitutional authority over the military that a civilian leader should have. It has been characterised by many as ethnic cleansing.
Instead, the State Department has called for a de-escalation of tensions between security forces and Rohingya militias and urged Myanmar's government to expand access to humanitarian aid groups and journalists.
The government says 176 out of 471, or 37.4% of all Rohingya villages are now empty of people, and an additional 34 villages were "partially abandoned".
Juncker however declined to say whether Suu Kyi should be stripped of the Nobel Peace Prize, an award the European Union itself won in 2012.
British officials said Thursday that most of the money will be spent in Bangladesh to provide assistance including food, shelter, water and sanitation for Rohingya refugees fleeing violence in Buddhist-majority Myanmar. "Today was a baby step forward, and it's admittedly rare that the Council finds a way to agree on Burma, but it's far less than what's needed in the face of the unfolding tragedy", said Akshaya Kumar, Human Rights Watch's deputy United Nations director.
Some members of the Rohingya community living in established refugee camps in Bangladesh have also been accused of joining the profiteering.
The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army, or ARSA, said in a statement posted Thursday on its Twitter account that it wants countries to help prevent foreign fighters from entering Myanmar's Rakhine state.
That prompted Myanmar's military to launch "clearance operations" against the rebels, setting off a wave of violence that has left hundreds dead, thousands of homes burned, and tens of thousands fleeing to Bangladesh.
The United Nations has called for a massive intensification of relief operations to help the refugees, and a much bigger response from the global community. He also reiterated his call for the government to grant the Rohingyas nationality or at least legal status so they can get jobs, education and health care.
"One is the current situation in Rakhine state".
Earlier on Monday, UN human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein had denounced the situation in Myanmar and described it as "a textbook example of ethnic cleansing".
"The humanitarian situation is catastrophic", he said, noting that at the time of his briefing to the press last week, there were 125,000 Rohingya who had fled into Bangladesh.
