Tutu implores 'beloved sister' Daw Suu to end violence in Rakhine

While her moral leadership and counsel has directed foreign governments' policy engagement in years past, that time may be nearing an end.

"I am trying to be just a normal student".

State Department officials say they've been in regular contact with Myanmar's government, primarily through US Ambassador Scot Marciel. My answer is no.

"We will always remain the open and compassionate country we are". Well, it certainly isn't due to doubts about the atrocities being perpetrated against the Rohingya. They must cease immediately.

Most Rohingya have never been granted citizenship of Myanmar because the government considers that their migration to the country, most of which took place during British colonial rule, was illegal.

Desmond Tutu has become the second Nobel Peace Prize victor to criticise fellow laureate Aung San Suu Kyi about her silence over the treatment of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. This is misguided, misinformed - or at the very least, premature. The Rohingya are explicitly forbidden from becoming citizens of Burma and have no political weight whatsoever. Those who do are finding borders closed on the other side.

In fact, some political groups rejected the commission from the start.

The South African, a veteran of the fight against apartheid, said Ms Suu Kyi's "silence" was "too steep" a price to pay for her position and called on her "to be courageous and resilient again". This includes the General Administration Department, which is responsible for the administration of the entire country. There was a nationalist feeling too which worked against them. "The situation in Rakhine has been such since many decades".

"What we forget is that she is a politician through and through".

He has already warned Suu Kyi that the treatment of the ethnic minority group is "besmirching" the country's reputation.

With another humanitarian crisis beckoning, Suu Kyi has done little to curb her military from excess force, an issue made all the worse by the arrival of the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), which some have argued provoked the latest crackdown. The latest bloodshed has resulted in 146,000 people fleeing the area, mostly into neighbouring Bangladesh. The report also recommends steps toward fostering reconciliation between all in Rakhine state, to address the deep-seated, centuries-old mistrust that can not easily be waged away.

Life for Myanmar's ethnic Rohingyas is looking grimmer by the day.

In the coming days Chinese diplomats have to explain to Pakistan. "All this said, I don't think this will lead to any policy shifts in Pakistan".

Suu Kyi has dismissed the Rohingya crisis as a misinformation campaign.

Mazor Mustafa, a Bangladeshi businessman handing out food and rehydration fluids at one refugee camp, said food was running low as more people arrived. She needs the military and police to professionalize and work to contain and not inflame the violence.

"The scale of the human rights and humanitarian crisis unfolding in Myanmar is unprecedented in its recent history". She must give voice to them, investigate them, and take all necessary means to prevent their repeat. United Nations agencies believe the figure could rise to 300,000 in the coming days.

Myanmar has a long road ahead.
