Suspend military action on Rohingyas: UN chief to Myanmar

17 Setiembre 2017

It was not clear whether there would be a change in the way aid is distributed at the Rohingya camps.

Antonio Guterres said the Rohingyas faced a "catastrophic" humanitarian crisis after the violence in the majority-Buddist country, describing the situation as ethnic cleansing.

During the tour hosted by Bangladesh's government, the group of international visitors saw thousands of people living in squalid conditions in makeshift shelters.

While "the true number of fires and extent of property destruction is likely to be much higher", Amnesty also says that satellite images form mixed ethnic areas show that non-Rohingya areas "appear to have been left untouched".

Bangladesh is protesting a violation of its airspace by helicopters and drones from Myanmar, as tensions between the two countries escalate over a massive influx of Rohingya Muslim refugees into Bangladesh.

"I must compliment the government of Bangladesh for receiving all these people with such a big warm heart".

"In the future, we have to think about a lasting solution", he told reporters. Bangladesh has said around 3,000 Rohingya have been killed.

Bangladesh's Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has called on Myanmar to take the Rohingya refugees back.

The visitors represented India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Pakistan, Nepal, the United States, Canada, Russia, China, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, North Korea and other resident missions in Dhaka.

A C-17 aircraft of the Indian Air Force on Thursday delivered around 55 tonnes of relief material for Rohingya Muslim refugees in Bangladesh, officials said.

After the statement, British UN Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said it was the first time in nine years the council had agreed to a statement on Myanmar.

Fear also gripped the Muslim communities in Yangon and Mandalay, which were both affected by anti-Muslim violence in 2013, as rumors of possible attacks on Muslims emerged. In order for a country's survival, the survival of a race, or in defense of national sovereignty, crimes against humanity or in-human acts may justifiably be committed as Hitler and the Holocaust.

Some diplomats were heard muttering, "inhuman, inhuman. oh, my God".

Indonesians, however, have shown solidarity with the Rohingya, carrying out regular protests to support them. Some used their mobile phones to shoot video of the devastation.

Other countries in Asia have been just as unwelcoming.

The UN documented mass gang rapes, killings - including of infants and young children - brutal beatings and disappearances committed by security personnel.

It said it had detected at least 80 major fires in inhabited areas since 25 August, following attacks on police posts by the rebel Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (Arsa). "This will help us expedite diplomatic initiatives", Alam told BenarNews.

His parents live in the Irrawaddy delta that feeds into the Andaman Sea and their concerns reflect fears that the anti-Muslim violence in Rakhine could spread across the country.

But outside of her country Suu Kyi's reputation as a defender of the oppressed is in ruins over the Rohingya crisis.

"They abetted local Buddhist people to destroy a mosque in the center of the town", he said.
