Myanmar Can Start New Chapter After Freeing Reuters Journalists

According to Reuters, Britain welcomed Myanmar’s release of two Reuters journalists on Tuesday after more than 500 days in jail, a step that Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said could open a new chapter in relations.The journalists had been jailed and sentenced to seven years in prison after working on an investigation into the killing of 10 Rohingya Muslim in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.

Hunt added that he hopes that we can also have the same kind of openness about the issues in Rakhine province for the Rohingyas.”
