Tillerson says USA considers individual sanctions for Myanmar

According to the lengthy report, published on the Facebook page of Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, engagements and fights caused the deaths of at least 376 insurgents, whom it described as "Bengali terrorists", and 13 members of the security forces.

It would appear that the world community has turned its back on the continued violence and persecution of the Rohingyas.

Burmese authorities refuse to use the term "Rohingya", with which the community identifies, rather using the term "Bengali".

The Myanmar Police Force and Border Guard Bangladesh hold a conference to discuss border security in Myanmar's capital Naypyidaw, Nov. 14, 2017.

Aung Htay Myint said the two nations will discuss the policy to repatriate Rohingya refugees who fled to Bangladesh and sign a memorandum of understanding when Bangladesh's Foreign Minister Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali visits Myanmar on November 19.

"Our findings are quite clear on what is happening", Laurence said.

With no one left to work Maungdaw's fields, huge swathes of verdant farmland are at risk of rotting - a cruel irony given the severe food shortages in aid-dependent Rakhine and the squalid refugee camps across the border. Through the statement read out by its President for the month of November, Sebastiano Cardi from Italy, the Council urged Myanmar to support the voluntary, safe and dignified return of displaced people and refugees to their homes in Rakhine State.

"The Burmese military's absurd effort to absolve itself of mass atrocities underscores why an independent global investigation is needed to establish the facts and identify those responsible", Brad Adams of Human Rights Watch, said in a statement on Tuesday.

"The Burmese authorities have once again shown that they can't and won't credibly investigate themselves". Like the ASEAN Chairman's Statement issued in late-September - a statement criticized by Malaysia's foreign minister, as well as by APHR, at the time - the draft document reportedly also made no mention of rights violations by security forces and did not name as a group the Rohingya, who have borne the brunt of the abuses and displacement.

Nevertheless, Burma has denied access to a specially created United Nations fact-finding mission as well as many global humanitarian organisations to operate in affected areas of the Rakhine.

"They did not arrest, beat or kill civilians". "Actually, the problem in Rakhine is just like fighting between two groups where some people have killed others". Irish Rockers U2 who had campaigned for Suu Kyi's release when she was a political prisoner also expressed their disappointment.

A growing list of prominent worldwide figures have criticised Suu Kyi's response to the crisis including the Dalai Lama, Pope Francis, and several fellow Nobel laureates such as Malala Yousafzai and Desmond Tutu.

The warning comes as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived in Myanmar where he will meet with the country's de facto leader, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, who has come under criticism for failing to stop or condemn or the violence.
