The United Nations has finally acknowledged that an ethnic cleansing of Muslims is taking place in Myanmar.

UN chief Antonio Guterres on Wednesday called for immediate end to violence in the country’s Rakhine state.

Also, the UN Security Council in its first statement on Myanmar over the past nine years condemned what it described as “excessive violence” against Muslims in the country’s Rakhine state.
