Suu Kyi meets Tillerson, UN chief
Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi faced rising global pressure to solve the crisis for her nation’s displaced Rohingya Muslim minority, meeting the UN chief and America’s top diplomat in the Philippines. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres told Suu Kyi that hundreds of thousands of displaced Muslims who had fled to Bangladesh should be allowed to return to their homes in Myanmar. ‘The SecretaryGeneral highlighted that strengthened efforts to ensure humanitarian access, safe, dignified, voluntary and sustained returns, as well as true reconciliation between communities, would be essential’, a UN statement said. Guterres’ comments came hours before Suu Kyi sat down with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Manila.
