Myanmar leader cancels plan to attend UN General Assembly session amid Rohingya Crisis

"We are very much active in relation to the Rohingya crisis but unfortunately it has not been easy because the government of Myanmar until now has been completely deaf to our requests", Guterres said on September 15. "That must stop", Tillerson said.

On a visit to London where he met British Prime Minister Theresa May and foreign minister, Boris Johnson, he told a news conference: "I think it is a defining moment in many ways for this new, emerging democracy".

They protested in front of the United Nations office located in Shibuya Ward, Tokyo Prefecture while holding signboards and placard that stated "We Stand With Daw Aung San Suu Kyi". Opprobrium has been heaped on Aung San Suu Kyi, who was once a darling of the rights community but now faces accusations of turning a blind eye to - and even abetting - a humanitarian catastrophe by Western powers. Suu Kyi, who is the de facto head of government in the nation also known as Burma, said it was important that violations of human rights be addressed, the Kentucky Republican said on the Senate floor.

In a letter addressed directly to the Burmese leader seen by the Daily Telegraph, Ms Thompson wrote: "Few people have inspired me in my life the way you do. but I can not stay silent when women and children suffer". "We should give them our strong support", Tillerson said.

Every Myanmar citizens of all ethnicities working here in Japan agree with what the government led by Aung San Suu Kyi is doing in Rakhine in order to keep the peace.
