Other minorities suffering too says Myanmar Vice President

Informing world leaders that the violence, suffering and mass displacement in Myanmar’s Rakhine province affected not just Muslim and Rakhine communities, but also other minority groups – to which most of the world has been oblivious – the country’s Vice-President has stressed his Government’s deep concern over the situation.
“There is no denying that this is a problem of significant magnitude,” said U Henry Van Thio, the Vice-President of Myanmar, addressing the UN General Assembly yesterday.
“I am [however] happy to inform you that the situation has improved.
No armed clashes have been reported since 5 September.
” Noting that his Government is also concerned over reports that the number of Muslims crossing into Bangladesh remains unabated, the Vice-President said that the reason needed to be found for the exodus.
