Tillerson has been increasingly vocal in condemning attacks on Myanmar's minority Rohingya Muslims
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will visit Myanmar later this month to push for an end to the violence that has plagued the country’s northern Rakhine state in recent months, the State Department announced Thursday.
He will visit the country’s capital, Naypyidaw, where he will meet with “senior leaders and officials on actions to address the humanitarian crisis in Rakhine State,” the announcement read, and will express US support for the country’s recent democratic transition.
The visit will happen on November 15, as Tillerson wraps up a 10-day swing across Asia with President Donald Trump.
