Western forces press Myanmar's Suu Kyi to end brutality

Responding militarily to last month's insurgency in Myanmar's west Asian area, more than 410,000 Rohingya Muslims were sent to neighbouring Bangladesh and escaped what the United Nations has called ethnoclear. Goverment says about 400 lives were lost in the wars. The Nobel Peace Prize winner Suu Kyi is facing a flood of global critique because she has not stopped the war.

On Tuesday she will talk to the country about the crises that the United States has described as a "decisive moment" for Myanmar. "Aung Sang Suu Kyi is expected to make a powerful declaration in this regard tomorrow," Jean-Yves le Drian, France's Foreign Minister, said to journalists in New York.

The UK Secretary of State Boris Johnson was host to a Rohingya crises resolution Ministeral Conference attended by Canadian, Danish, Turkish, Australian, Indonesian, Swedish, Bangladeshi, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and a European Union official. "All we' re trying to do is get everyone to approve that number one, the murders must stop and the violence must stop.

"It' s important that Aung San Suu Kyi and the civil administration make it clear that this abuse must stop," he said. China, which like the United States has worked to develop stronger relations with Myanmar, a strategic Southeast Asian nation, will not participate, said a spokesperson for China and quoted "a truly full calendar" for Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Approximately one million Rohingya were living in Rakhine State until the recent outbreak. "She said that during the New York government ministers' gathering there was "agreement that there must be an end to the fighting and there must be a cease-fire. "We also stressed the need for human aid to get through and that the Rohingya must be able to go home," Bishop said.

United States called on the Myanmar administration to end Myanmar's armed action in Rakhine state, to provide human rights support and to support the secure returns of the civilian population to their houses, Haley said in a post-Myanmar declaration. "There is still a danger of attack or death, humanity is not getting to the populations who need it, and virgin civilists are still escaping across the Bangladesh border," Haley said.

Washingtons has also demanded an end to the fighting and a return to providing relief, and a Vice Minister of State, Patrick Murphy, is expected in Myanmar this weekend. "We demonstrate the (Myanmar) administration to act quickly to re-establish the state under the rule of Law, investigating allegations of breaches and infringements of fundamental freedoms and blaming the police and others for abuse and violations," a U.S. State Department spokesperson said.

US-Myanmar relations began to improve after the military's withdrawal from power in 2011 and opened the way for an elections won by Suu Kyi's political group in 2015. However, the army keeps a firm grip on power and stays in charge of safety. The United States and Myanmar's West Alliance have for years been imposing penalties on Myanmar in supporting Suu Kyi's democratic alliance.

Myanmar's answer was to develop stronger relations with China. But Myanmar said early this months that it is bargaining with China and Russia, both of which have a constant voice against the members of the Security Council, to stop any offer to condemn the state for the force.
