"Once again, Myanmar's military is trying to sweep serious violations against the Rohingya under the carpet", said James Gomez, Amnesty International's Regional Director for Southeast Asia and the Pacific in a statement yesterday.

Myanmar and Bangladesh have already agreed on a deal to repatriate Rohingya refugees and take steps to boost border security.

On Monday, Suu Kyi said at the summit with her Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) counterparts that she was willing to receive global aid for the Rohingya and is prepared to begin the process of repatriation of the over 614,000 members of the minority group who have fled to Bangladesh after violence erupted late August in Rakhine state.

However, in a statement issued by military chief Senior Gen. Min Aung Hlaing late Monday cleared soldiers of all the allegations.

Contradicting the army report, several Rohingya who fled violence have already detailed accounts of mass killings, brutal beatings, torture and rape against Rohingya children, women, and men. Gen. Maung Maung Soe as head of Western Command.

"She has said what she will do, and ASEAN must make comments on Myanmar only after waiting and seeing what she does", he said.

A spokeswoman for the US State Department, Katina Adams, said the United States was aware of reports of the general's replacement.

Robertson said the government and military had denied United Nations investigators access to Rakhine in recent months to prevent further evidence of atrocities emerging.

Foreign secretary Md. Shahidul Haque and state secretary of the Danish Development Cooperation Martin Bille Hermann discussed the present Rohingya crisis and bilateral trade between two countries.

In September, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the situation in Rakhine was best described as ethnic cleansing.

One paragraph of the communique, seen by Reuters on Monday, mentions the importance of humanitarian relief provided for victims of natural disasters in Vietnam and a recent urban battle with Islamist militants in the Philippines, as well as "affected communities" in northern Rakhine state.

"This is a major humanitarian crisis which looks like ethnic cleansing", she said in a speech delivered at the Lord Mayor's Banquet in the City of London.

"Talks between Bangladesh and Myanmar on repatriation should continue", he said.

"After that, Myanmar will accept refugees back by forming joint committees", he said.
