YANGON: Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi will address the nation for the first time over a near three-week crisis in Rakhine state which has left scores dead and sent some 380,000 Rohingya muslims fleeing to Bangladesh.

“She is going to speak for national reconciliation and peace,” in a televised address on September 19, government spokesman Zaw Htay told reporters.
