a normal life including freedom of movement and the excess to liberty markets education and else. our u.n. correspondent was in jordan joins us live now from the u.n. headquarters in new york and really strong words there from the u.n. secretary general was felicity was extremely extremely strong language from the u.n. secretary general there's been a lot of mounting concern here at u.n. headquarters and there's been concern about whether there's been enough pressure coming from the u.n. on the government of me and maher and more particularly on the state council or on sun suchi to try to do right by the raw injured people my colleague james bays was in the press briefing with antonio good terrorists secretary general and he put this question to antonio good tallish about the situation in myanmar i asked you this question last week and it's about how you term the violence that's
8:04 pm
being carried out right now in myanmar your high commissioner for human rights said it seems to be a textbook example of ethnic cleansing given the situation has got so much worse in the last week do you believe this is ethnic cleansing well i would answer your question with another question when one third of the growing a population had to flee the country can you find a better word to describe it. and also in the last column as well as we were hearing that on sunset she herself has counseled her trip to the u.n. next week. that's right and it's certainly because of the fact that the crisis is mounting and it's not unusual that world leaders will stay home rather than attend some sort of high level summit or the u.n. general assembly opening session in this case because it's more important for them to be seen dealing with the crisis there's also some speculation that she might run
8:05 pm
into a lot of face to face criticism of her leadership or lock of leadership with some critics would argue as the crisis with the hedge of people has increased in the past several months now certainly there's also the fact that the u.n. security council is now in a closed door consultation about the crisis in me amar and certainly there would be perhaps more of our professions if she were to be here in new york engaging with the ambassadors and possibly being told her directly what they think of her leadership on this issue but that said antonio good terrace did say in response to a question that he found out that she wasn't coming to the u.n. general assembly high level session next week through the media and he has not yet spoken with her but also stressed to reporters that he is prepared to continue
8:06 pm
direct talks with her about the crisis but he very much wants to see the crisis resolved as quickly as possible given what he's called the catastrophic level of humanitarian suffering that the range of people are now suffering while still in life that the u.n. in new york thanks false. well the u.n. secretary general's comments come after the government in mammals said one hundred and seventy six were completely empty as residents fled the recent upsurge in violence and it is said revenge of muslims have begun leaving at least thirty four other villages as that military crackdown continues. government a military of course has been heavily criticized for driving the minority muslim or hindu off the country or condemnation from the international community has been swift many in the country itself have rallied behind the military crackdown. way reports from. the sign reads collecting donations for the displaced in rakhine
8:07 pm
state this charity drive is being run by a monastery in yangon six hundred kilometers from the fighting in northern rakhine state but it's mainly for the rakhine the ethnic majority in the state who are mostly buddhists some thirty thousand of whom have been displaced. if there was fighting here among. could be killed but a monastery will save all who shelter their our religion forbids us from killing but i'm not afraid to walk past a monastery a church or a hindu or sikh temple but i'm scared of walking past a mosque there are a few in myanmar who will speak out publicly in support of the ranger the muslim minority remain stateless and are largely regarded as illegal migrants from bangladesh the military crackdown which has been condemned for its brutality around the world hasn't drawn the same sort of criticism from people here. yes they should carry out a security operation to eradicate terrorism if not they'll be no peace so that's
8:08 pm
why we support the military but the operation should only target terrorists not the whole muslim community. i support the military operation because terrorism is not good it's good to fight terrorism everyone should live within the law. the military and the government say the operation is a legitimate exercise targeting what it considers a terrorist organization the crisis in rakhine and the exodus of ranger refugees into bangladesh are being widely covered by the international media and yet here they don't get much attention in the local press and when they do that's usually a government that this article for example promotes a press release that people in northern recalling have started to go back home because peace and stability have started to return to the area. but there's no mention of the hundreds of thousands who fled to bangladesh in under three weeks who now face an uncertain future and a daily struggle for survival florence li al jazeera yangon. chadri has more now
