CNN reports that after meeting Pope Francis during his visit to Burma, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing said all faiths in the country are able to worship freely.

Mark Farmaner, director of Burma Campaign UK, is quoted: “Min Aung Hlaing is the biggest obstacle to improving human rights, democratic reform, peace, modernization, and improving health and education in Burma.” While the Pope has spoken out in support of the Rohingya in the past, says CNN, it remains to be seen how much he will press the matter while in Myanmar.
