Canadian PM concerned over Rohingya crisis

Canadian PM concerned over Rohingya crisis”

"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".

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 Thursday for massive help for the almost 400,000 who fled to Bangladesh, amid concern the number could keep rising unless Myanmar ends what critics denounce as "ethnic cleansing".

Tens of thousands of refugees are trapped on the border into Bangladesh without basic food and medicine amid operations by the Myanmar military, which have already killed hundreds.

Tillerson stated that Suu Kyi has found herself in a hard and complex situation and that Myanmar's democracy is facing a defining moment.

The longtime human rights icon and Nobel peace laureate has been berated for failing to speak up for the Rohingya minority amid a crisis that has shocked the worldwide community.

McConnell said Suu Kyi's position in the government was "exceedingly difficult" and that as a civilian, she had virtually no authority over the military.

"In my view, publicly condemning Aung San Suu Kyi, the best hope for democratic reform in Burma, is not constructive" and could slow the progress toward a representative government, McConnell said.

McCain has sought to remove language from a defense spending bill detailing expanded military cooperation with Myanmar.
