US Under Secretary of State asks Myanmar to ensure safe return of Rohingyas

US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale has pressed Myanmar to end conflicts and secure return of the Rohingyas sheltered in Bangladesh.

"Under Secretary Hale pressed the Burmese government to end conflict across the country and secure the voluntary, safe, dignified, and sustainable return of Rohingya and other refugees and internally displaced persons," according to a readout of the US State Department.

Hale spoke with Burmese State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi on Tuesday to reaffirm American support for democratic reforms and humanitarian relief efforts in Burma and a credible, transparent, and inclusive national election in November.

Meanwhile, conflicts between Arakan Army and Myanmar military escalates in Rakhine and Kachin states, forcing thousands of civilians to flee their homes.
