Pence urges aid for Rohingya Muslims

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence is warning that violence against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar that has triggered a massive refugee exodus will "sow seeds of hatred" that could consume the region and threaten global peace.

Pence issued the warning at the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday. He urged Myanmar security forces "to end their violence immediately and support diplomatic efforts for a long-term solution."

More than 400,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since Aug. 25 when attacks on security forces by Rohingya insurgents prompted a military crackdown and reprisals by majority Buddhists against the minority group.

TVNL Comment: Why didn't Trump acknowledge the persecution and slaughter of the Rohingyan refugees fleeing Mayanmar?  Oh, yes, he was too busy bashing the Iran deal as a crime.  Save us all and get rid of Trump, please...
