Muscat Daily - - WORLD -

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.
