Myanmar confirms controversial Rohingya plan at United Nations

YANGON (Reuters) Myanmar has confirmed to the United Nations it is finalising a plan that will offer minority Rohingya Muslims citizenship if they change their ethnicity to suggest Bangladeshi origin, a move rights groups say could force thousands into detention camps. Most of Myanmar's 1.1 million Rohingya are stateless and live in apartheidlike conditions in Rakhine state on the western coast of the predominantly Buddhist country. Almost 140,000 Rohingya remain displaced after deadly clashes with ethnic Rakhine Buddhists in 2012 #India #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Government #Argentina #opinion

Syria raids show Saudi, UAE ambition to extend regional authority

DUBAI/RIYADH (Reuters) The decision by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to join air strikes in Syria reflects an increasingly muscular foreign policy by the Gulf Arab heavyweights that has already started to reshape the balance of power in the Middle East. With Egypt, Syria and Iraq where the Arab world's armed might has usually rested all now immersed in civil wars or internal political turmoil, the emergence of Gulf states as military players asserting an unremitting hostility to Islamists could alter the region's political equation. While neither country appears likely to move towards the habitual use of military power to settle disputes or impose interests, the strikes in Syria demonstrated a growing comfort with the use of hard power alongside diplomacy. #United States #India #China #Business #Technology #markets #Italy #Argentina #Mexico
