The White House condemned the violence occurring against Muslims in the primarily-Buddhist nation of Burma, which has caused at least 300,000 people to evacuate their homes in response to the attacks on Burmese security posts in August.
"The massive displacement and victimization of people, including large numbers of the ethnic Rohingya community and other minorities, shows that Burmese security forces are not protecting civilians," Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
"We are alarmed by the allegations of human rights abuses, including extrajudicial killings, burning of villages, massacres, and rape, by security forces and by civilians acting with these forces' consent."
State Counsellor and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi is presiding over a genocide against Muslims in Burma that started before she took office. However, she has disappinted many in the world community by not taking any action to stop it.
The end of August, between 2,000-3,000 Muslims were killed in Burma's Rakhine state, the European Rohingya Council told the Daily Sabah Asia Pacific. Council spokeswoman Anita Schug called the attacks a "slow-burning genocide"
Over 120,00 refugees have fled in response to the violence, The Guardian reported.
The United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres, requested Burma cease the violence because it was "creating a situation that can destabilize the region." UN aid agencies have been prevented from delivering food, water, and medicine, according to The Guardian.
"We call on Burmese security authorities to respect the rule of law, stop the violence, and end the displacement of civilians from all communities," the White House statement said.
The White House also urged the Burmese government to provide humanitarian assistance to the victims of the genocide and requested media were granted access to the afflicted areas soon.
