Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Syed Muazzem Ali today sought international support for a resolution on human rights violation of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
The resolution, sponsored jointly by the OIC and EU, is titled The Situation of Human Rights of Rohingya Muslims and other minorities in Myanmar.
It will be tabled for adoption at the ongoing session of the 3rd Committee of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Nov. 14 for the third consecutive years. It got overwhelming support from the UN members in past two years.
Nearly 45 New Delhi-based foreign diplomats, including heads of the mission, who are concurrently accredited to Bangladesh attended the briefing.
In the briefing Syed Muazzem Ali said Bangladesh is hosting over a million forcibly displaced Rohingyas from Myanmar for long. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina opened for the border for the Rohingyas in their latest influx in 2017 out of humanitarian consideration only.
He referred to the 4-point proposal placed by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the last UNGA session calling for a safe and sustainable return and reintegration of Rohingyas to Myanmar.
We believe that on the basis of the 4-point plan, a continued and sustained international pressure on Myanmar would be catalyst for a long-term solution, the envoy told the diplomats at the briefing held at the mission.
Quoting from Sheikh Hasina’s proposal the envoy said international community must ensure that the root causes of Rohingya problem are addressed and the violation of human rights and other atrocity, crimes committed against Rohingyas are accounted for.
