  • Suu Kyi tells Republican senator she seeks aid for Rohingya

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. It has been characterised by many as ethnic cleansing. A week ago that figure stood at 270,000.

During that meeting, Murphy told the ambassador that Myanmar should publicly acknowledge that Rohingya groups in particular have fled across the border into Bangladesh, a senior State Department official familiar with the conversation told CNN, and that those refugees should now be allowed to return home.

During a phone call, Trudeau stressed Suu Kyi's role as a "moral and political leader" for the nation, as he voiced his "deep concerns over the situation in Rakhine state for Rohingya Muslims", his office said in a statement.

The U.S. State Department, Wednesday denounced the violence against Rohingya civilians in the Rakhine State, however did not directly condemn the government of Myanmar.

"It is a defining moment, in many ways, for this new emerging democracy, although it is a power-sharing arrangement", Tillerson said. It is important the global community speaks out in support of what we all know the expectation is in terms of the treatment of people regardless of their ethnicity. And so we appreciate the hard and complex situation Aung San Suu Kyi finds herself in. "I think many people around the world share that admiration".

An estimated 380,000 Rohingya refugees have fled the violence in Myanmar and are now seeking refuge in Bangladesh, UN Secretary General António Guterres said Wednesday.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Wednesday called on Myanmar to halt military action and atrocities against the Rohingya in Rakhine state, saying the ongoing violence by security forces against the Muslim minority was "completely unacceptable and catastrophic".

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