Myanmar: Tillerson calls for independent Rohingya crisis investigation

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said events in Rakhine State had traits of a «crime against humanity,» speaking in Naypyidaw alongside Aung San Suu Kyi on Wednesday. «What we know occurred in Rakhine State that lead to so many people leave the area, has a number of characteristics, certainly [a] crime against humanity,» he said, before calling for an independent investigation. «Whether it... Еще meets all the criteria for ethnic cleansing, I think we continue to evaluate that ourselves,» he stressed. Tillerson also said that a solution to the crisis in the country could not be achieved quickly, saying there are «very deep issues» to be addressed, which according to him, will take time. 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.
