UN chief tells Myanmar to end anti-Rohingya operations

Myanmar national security adviser invites Guterres to the country

UNITED NATIONS -- U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Thursday called on the Myanmar government to halt the military operations responsible for the displacement of more than 500,000 Rohingya Muslims.

Thursday's Security Council meeting marks the first open meeting on the situation in Myanmar since 2009, as previous attempts to put the country on the council's agenda were met with resistance from China, a supporter of the Burmese military.
