  • Myanmar's Rakhine State denies persecution at root of migrant crisis

    By Antoni Slodkowski and Tim McLaughlin SITTWE, Myanmar/YANGON (Reuters) - The head of the Myanmar state from which thousands of Rohingya Muslims are fleeing denied that persecution had prompted the exodus after the United States called on the country to deal with its root causes.

Rakhine Chief Minister Maung Maung Ohn told Reuters after meeting United Nations officials on Friday: "I am disappointed by, and completely disagree and reject such unfounded allegations by the United States." "This (migration) is human trafficking, not (due to) political or religious discrimination at all." Blinken, who was visiting Myanmar on Thursday and Friday, told Myanmar's leaders they needed to address discrimination and violence against the minority Rohingya.
