this investigation in interviewed over three thousand villagers saying that the military on the ground there in rakhine state over the last several months to three months conducted themselves with the rules of engagement so all these accusations that have been told to u.n. officials to n.g.o.s officials in bangladesh those six hundred thousand people who fled rakhine state those were i wouldn't accounts they're saying the military here is saying that they're wrong they say their military officers carried out the process they say was this process to wipe out terrorists as they call them with proper rules of engagement so obviously there's you know some outcry from the human rights community around the world calling this a whitewash this report saying that obviously these hundreds of witnesses thousands of witnesses who have said exactly the opposite in bangladesh and that this report comes out and says conducted by the military here myanmar saying that they had no
wrongdoing. u.s. secretary of state thanks tennyson is in the capital on wednesday what's he up to and he's going to be talking to. he'll be speaking to the military leaders we know that he met on the sidelines of that ossie on meeting down in the philippines he saw on songs who cheat they didn't make any statements on camera they just had a photo opportunity so he had a sideline meeting with her so most likely he'll focus on and there's not too much word jane coming out from either the ministry of foreign affairs here in myanmar or the u.s. state department officials who are traveling with restaurants and the secretary of state what's going to be happening here on wednesday but what we heard before the weeks leading up to this visit is that he'll meet with military leadership now it needs to be said the united states government has been critical of the way the military here in myanmar has handled the situation we're kind state so we can imagine that those meetings will be pretty pointed conversations we don't have any idea if there are going to be any on camera public statements made after these
meetings here tomorrow in the capitol maybe door but we do know is leading up to this they have been very critical of how the military has handled the situation in rakhine state and the range of refugees and they have said that they need to be held accountable the united states saying about those military leaders there's even been discussions within the government and in the senate and congress in the united states that sanctions should be possibly re implemented here in myanmar if they need to be taken to that to that level but will be interesting to see how these meetings are conducted on wednesday and also if we hear anything about the details of what happens inside those meetings thank you for that scott. canadian prime minister just in today is also. at the s. and summit he said he highlighted concerns about the treatment of the referendum minority in light of events in myanmar is routine state i've named a special envoy to the region i've asked him to engage in diplomatic efforts and
