On Monday, Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano claimed success because Myanmar, an Asean member, had called on other members of the bloc to provide humanitarian assistance following the exodus of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims who have been forced to flee their homes in Myanmar's Rakhine state.
"Although the Bengali villages where the engagements took place were burning and women and children were fleeing their homes, not a single shot was sacked on them", it said, adding that 376 "terrorists" had been killed.
"The Burmese military's absurd effort to absolve itself of mass atrocities underscores why an independent worldwide investigation is needed to establish the facts and identify those responsible", said Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch, in a statement.
The report stated that almost 376 "terrorists" were killed in fighting during the August attacks.
He also didn't give any indication that he spoke to Myanmar's de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, about the conflict.
A public health crisis is looming on the horizon, and it is ludicrous to think that Bangladesh should go on bearing the responsibility of keeping Rohingyas safe indefinitely while the UNSC debates on and on about whether it should or should not pass a resolution condemning the actions of the Myanmar government.
Almost 600,000 Rohingya, who have been displaced from the Rakhine state in the exodus described as a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing" by the United Nations, are now living in deplorable conditions in makeshift camps in regions bordering Bangladesh.
Rees-Mogg a Joke or a new Leader?
Despite all the critics around him, Rees-Mogg is making big steps in the race using all the scandals around him as extra scores. Conservative thinking in its very hard right determination is making his person attractive for the UK conservative fans.
Dujarric said the number of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh has increased to 618,000 over the weekend.
"It's a major humanitarian crisis".
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday added his voice to the chorus of concern, informing ASEAN leaders he has tasked his special envoy to engage in diplomatic efforts to resolve the Rohingya crisis. Denmark has allocated an additional $5.2 million to the existing country programme which includes agricultural education, climate change adaptation and human rights support to the local people in Cox's Bazar.
The Nobel peace prize victor has failed to speak out strongly over the Rohingya's plight.
"After recording countless stories of horror and using satellite analysis to track the growing devastation we can only reach one conclusion: These attacks amount to crimes against humanity".
"What we found took place in Rakhine state... is a textbook example of ethnic cleansing, murder, rape, assault, killings, torture".
Tillerson has deemed Myanmar military leaders "responsible" for atrocities that the army denies.
