After insurgents' truce, Myanmar says 'we don't negotiate with terrorists'

After insurgents' truce, Myanmar says 'we don't negotiate with terrorists'By John Chalmers and Danish Siddiqui YANGON/SHAH PORIR DWIP ISLAND, Bangladesh (Reuters) – Myanmar on Sunday rebuffed a ceasefire declared by Muslim Rohingya insurgents to enable the delivery of aid to thousands of displaced people in the violence-racked state of Rakhine, declaring simply that it did not negotiate with terrorists. Attacks by militants on police posts and an army base on Aug. 25 prompted a military counter-offensive that triggered an exodus of Rohingya to Bangladesh, adding to the hundreds of thousands already there from previous spasms of conflict. According to the latest estimate by U.N. workers in the Cox’s Bazar region of southern Bangladesh, about 294,000 – many of them sick or wounded – have arrived in just 15 days, putting huge strain on humanitarian agencies’ operations.
