Myanmar's government will "take decisive action to prevent violent attacks against civilians," according to its statement. "It will hold accountable the perpetrators of such attacks; it will work with the international community to meet the humanitarian needs of the people; and it will address contentious political dimensions, ranging from resettlement of displaced populations to granting of citizenship."
