Myanmar when to VisitBurma, when to visit
Franziskus defending Rohingya's silences on his Myanmar voyage
In Myanmar, Pope Francis was defending his official silences about the hardship of the Muslim Rohingya migrants. In an address in South-East Asia, he insisted on the need for a" tribute to all ethnicities and their identities", but he did not fail to make explicit mention of what the UN has called "a text-book operation of ethnical cleansing", as more than 620,000 Rohingya have escaped from Myanmar's Rakhine state in recent month, in the midst of armed repression.
Pope Piet was waiting until he was in Bangladesh on Friday before he mentioned the names of the Muslims who had been tortured. He said to the journalists aboard the Pope's aircraft on Saturday that he was optimistic that his embassy had been listened to at personal gatherings with Myanmar head Aung San Suu Kyi and Myanmar Army Commander Min Aung Hlaing.
However, I had the pleasure of dialog and left the other side to dialog, and in this way the news got through. Even there the embassy arrived." After discussions with the Pope, Ms Suu Kyi described the Rohingya crises as "the Rakhine state situation", which "attracted the world's attention".
It was condemned internationally for not talking about the most serious Asian Afghan repatriation crises in years, but the Pope seemed to have a sympathetic attitude to her stance, as the Nobel Peace Prize laureate has no control over the general with whom her regime is sharing it. While it is going through a process of transformation after centuries of dictatorial rule, the Pope said it was possible that Myanmar would "take two strides forward, one move back".
Several of those who made it to Bangladesh were able to see the Pope during his Friday trip to Dhaka, where he shed a teardrop as he listened to their tales and spoke their names first public.
