Myanmar: Pope Francis fails to mention Rohingya during speech

SOT, Aung San Suu Kyi, State Counsellor of Myanmar (English): «That true freedom cannot survive without justice. These words resonate with us today, just as they did with those who fought for independence that our people may be able to realise their full potential. It is incumbent on us to continue the task of building a new nation founded on laws and institutions that will guarantee each and... Еще everyone in our land justice, freedom, and, security. The road of peace is not always smooth but it is the only way that will lead our people to their dream of a just and prosporous land that will be their refuge, their pride, their joy.» Pope Francis failed to reference the Rohingya people during his speech in Myanmar on Tuesday alongside the country’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Suu Kyi also did not mention the crisis directly, instead calling for 'strength' in the face of the countries 'challenges'. Suu Kyi stated: «It is incumbent on us to continue the task of building a new nation founded on laws and institutions that will guarantee each and every one in our land justice, freedom, and, security. «The road of peace is not always smooth but it is the only way that will lead our people to their dream of a just and prosperous land that will be their refuge, their pride, their joy.» The 80-year-old Pope is on the second day of a four-day visit to the country. Around 600,000 people are believed to have fled Myanmar since late August, the majority of them Rohingya, amid widespread reports of indiscriminate killings, arson, looting and rape by the Myanmar military.
