washington - The United States is taking action against Myanmar and considering many other sanctions due to the treatment of the Rohingya Muslims in that country. That told the US Department of Foreign Affairs Monday.
What the possible penalties will imply is not known, but they are probably targeted at specific army leaders.
The US has stated in a statement that it is about 'recent events' in Myanmar and especially for the violence that the Rohingya and other minorities have to resist. According to the Americans, the 'necessity' is that every individual and state is held accountable for his actions.
Already a million Rohingya Muslims fled from Myanmar to neighboring Bangladesh. They flee for the violence of security forces.
