Sushma Swaraj to visit Myanmar; focus on Rohingyas

United Nations Security Council delegates arrive at Sittwe airport in western Myanmar's Rakhine state

Top U.N. envoys have warned Tuesday that the Myanmar government needed to better prepare for the return from Bangladesh of Rohingya Muslims who have fled due to human rights abuses perpetrated by security forces.

Before they began their two-day visit to Myanmar, the delegation members spent three days in Bangladesh visiting refugee camps and meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. "One is an ICC [International Criminal Court] referral".

She did not comment on Min Aung Hlaing's response.

India has called for a long-term solution for socio-economic development in Myanmar's Rakhine State to solve the crisis.

He denied that soldiers under his command had committed sexual violence during the crackdown, contradicting hundreds of testimonies recorded by worldwide organizations in Cox's Bazar.

Since Aug. 25, 2017, some 750,000 refugees, mostly children and women, fled Myanmar when Myanmar forces launched a crackdown on the minority Muslim community, according to the UN.

"The situation can not remain without a solution and the message that we are conveying to Myanmar, to refugees themselves, to the rest of the world, is that we are determined to find a solution to this crisis", al-Otaibi said.

The examination, led by the State Department, is modelled on a forensic investigation of mass atrocities in Sudan's Darfur region in 2004.

But he said, "Our position which we have taken on the displaced persons have been articulated from time to time". He said he did not believe the Trump administration would pay serious attention to the findings.

In the letter, the USA president said those in Myanmar who instigated the Rohingya crisis must be held accountable. "So the investigation can not have that much impact".

"The United States will continue to pressure Myanmar to create necessary conditions for the safe and voluntary return of the Rohingya people to their homeland", Trump said in the letter to prime minister.

Bangladesh and Burma agreed in December to begin repatriating the refugees in January, but the process has been delayed.

Bangladesh and Myanmar signed a bilateral agreement last November that recognised the need for a long-lasting and comprehensive solution to the crisis and the voluntary return of refugees under global law. "They got to know about what really happened in Rakhine state, and because they have seen and know the truth, we think their attitude will change at least a little".

Myanmar has asked the Rohingya to accept National Verification Cards, which some refugees have said are inadequate because they do not guarantee citizenship. #UNSC pressed Burma on United Nations access, creating conditions for #Rohingya refugees to go home safely, credible investigations into the violence, and addressing root causes of the crisis.
