China has refused to condemn the government in Burma over the Rohingya crisis and claimed foreign intervention does not work.

The international community has widely condemned the military response to an incursion by Rohingya militants, which has seen around 600,000 refugees flee from Burma into neighbouring Bangladesh. China, a powerful neighbour to Burma, said it supported the country’s efforts in “safeguarding peace and stability”.  Read more ›

Rohingya Refugee Children in Bangladesh in dire conditions: UNICEF

Rohingya Refugee Children in Bangladesh in dire conditions: UNICEF

 Reuters Published: 2017-10-20  09:29:45.0 BdST Updated: 2017-10-20 16:45:34.0 BdST

Nearly 340,000 Rohingya children are living in squalid conditions in Bangladesh camps where they lack enough food, clean water and health care, the United Nations Children’s Fund or UNICEF said on Friday

Up to 12,000 more children join them every week, fleeing violence or hunger in Myanmar, often still traumatised by atrocities they witnessed, it said in a report “Outcast and Desperate”.

In all, almost 600,000 Rohingya refugees have left northern Rakhine state since Aug. 25 when the UN says the Myanmar army began a campaign of “ethnic cleansing” following insurgent attacks. “This isn’t going to be a short-term, it isn’t going to end anytime soon,” Simon Ingram, the report’s author and a UNICEF official, told a news briefing.

UNICEF describes ‘hell on earth’ for Rohingya children

“So it is absolutely critical that the borders remain open and that protection for children is given and equally that children born in Bangladesh have their birth registered.” Most Rohingya are stateless in Myanmar and many fled without papers, he said, adding of the newborns in Bangladesh: “Without an identity they have no chance of ever assimilating into any society effectively.” Read more ›

The grouping of eight developing nations, known as D-8, has pledged the ‘political and humanitarian support’ towards Bangladesh and called for a durable solution to the Rohingya crisis

The group comprising Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan and Turkey made the pledge at a summit in Istanbul, according to the foreign ministry in Dhaka.

State minister for foreign affairs Md Shahriar Alam led the Bangladesh delegation at the summit on Friday chaired by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “Rohingya crisis has received prominence in the D-8 summit held in Istanbul,” the ministry said in a statement adding “They termed the recent situation in Myanmar’s Rakhine State as ethnic cleansing.”

Erdoğan as D-8 Chair thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, and the government of Bangladesh for opening hearts and borders for the forcibly displaced Rohingyas, and commendable role and efforts for a solution to the problem. He stressed the need for political stability in Myanmar, and assured of its maximum support for the Rohingyas and their host Bangladesh, particularly in OIC and UN. Read more ›
