Highlights: Suu Kyi addresses nation on Rohingya crisis

PM Trudeau calls on Suu Kyi to condemn violence against Rohingya Muslims

Aung San Suu Kyi, the celebrated de facto leader of Myanmar, has come under harsh worldwide criticism for failing to speak out against the violence.

But she did express concern for the "suffering of all people" swept up in the latest violence, her most compassionate words yet for the more than 410,000 Rohingya who have fled Rakhine state for Bangladesh.

Suu Kyi invited members of the global community to visit Rohingya villages, and said a central committee had been constituted to enforce the rule of law and spur development in Rakhine.

"We invite you to join us, to talk to us, to discuss with us, to go with us to the problem areas, where we can guarantee security for you", she said.

She said her government was prepared to begin verifying the 400,000 refugees who had fled into Bangladesh, in preparation for their repatriation.

Suu Kyi, who is officially Myanmar's state counselor, had not previously made any public comments on the crisis, aside from a read-out of a telephone call she had with the Turkish president in which she said an "iceberg of misinformation" was behind the crisis.

When asked what type of allegations and counter-allegations Suu Kyi was referring to, the journalist said, "I think she was asking to not exaggerate the Rohingya issue".

"But this terrorist organisation, if not linked, may be inspired by other terrorist forces and we don't reject the idea of they being linked to foreign terrorist organisations", Alam said. We will also investigate why so many young Muslims are crossing the border and going to Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, while British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson hosted a meeting to discuss the crisis at the United Nations yesterday, he did not call for punitive sanctions on the country, the New York Times reported.

She said, "Government has been making every effort to restore peace and stability and to bring harmony".

Human rights activists, fellow Nobel laureates and much of the world's Muslim community have condemned Suu Kyi for failing to use her position as a government leader and moral authority to speak out on behalf of Rohingyas.

On Aug. 25, a Rohingya militant group staged a series of attacks against police outposts in Rakhine state. Refugees who have fled to Bangladesh can not return to this appalling status quo. "More than 50% of villages are still intact", she said.

"Based on the principles to which both countries agreed at this time, we can continue with the verification process of refugees who wish to return to Myanmar".

However, Andrew Mitchell, the former International Development Secretary, defended the programme which he said was "at a very early stage".

"The worldwide community is committed to seeking a solution that ends this crisis and brings peace and stability to Rakhine State and the rest of Burma", the US ambassador said in a statement. Action will be taken against all people regardless their religion, she says.
