India asks Myanmar to handle situation in Rakhine state with 'maturity'

The United States has backed Aung San Suu Kyi's civilian government but on Friday, the USA deputy assistant secretary of state for East Asia, Patrick Murphy said the U.S. saw shortcomings on the part of Myanmar security forces and the government in dealing with the situation.

Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) called a special meeting in Astana over Rohingya Muslims crisis, originally a two-day summit for science and technology in Astana, capital city of Kazakhstan.

They also asked for the dispatch of humanitarian aid and a fact-finding committee to the region to investigate the atrocities against Muslims.

The Noble Peace Prize victor has faced worldwide criticism for her handling of the humanitarian crisis facing Rohingya Muslims in the country's Rakhine state.

The MEA said that New Delhi remained deeply concerned about the situation in Rakhine state in Myanmar. A Bangladeshi border guard told CNN that about eight bodies had been retrieved from the Naf River on September 6, and out of these many were children.

"We are partners in your concerns over the loss of lives of security forces and innocent people due to the extremist violence in Rakhine state", Modi said. Rohingya who have fled Myanmar, however, have described large-scale violence perpetrated by Myanmar troops and Buddhist mobs setting fire to their homes, spraying bullets indiscriminately, stabbing civilians and ordering them to abandon their homes or be killed.

Lee expressed scepticism about authorities' claims that the Rohingya were burning their own houses, pointing out that nearby Buddhist villages were untouched - and it is the rainy season.

Earlier this month her office accused aid workers in Myanmar of providing support to the Rohingya armed group prompting fears for their safety.

"So far we have seen very little comments from the Trump administration about the situation which is quite shocking", said Robertson, "There is a massive humanitarian crisis in a country which, until recently, the United States spent a great deal of time trying to understand them and work with the government on various developments and trade", Robertson said.

She also says she is pleased to be following in the footsteps of another "strong female leader" from Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto, who studied at Oxford.

"We have to take care of everybody who is living in our country, whether or not they are our citizens, because it is our duty", Myanmar State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi told reporters Thursday.

The IRGC, the statement said, regards supporting the oppressed Myanmar Muslims and bringing the world attention to their plight as "the historic and inevitable responsibility of all nations and communities". People expect her to have that big high moral voice but she's a politician, and what's the most important objective if you are a politician?
