UN Security Council to visit Myanmar, Bangladesh, Iraq

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSRelief) have signed a $3 million agreement to provide emergency relief to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

About 870,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh, with about 670,000 of those refugees arriving since last August.

The agreement was signed during the visit of a delegation from KSRelief to the Rohingya camps Cox's Bazar, according to a UNHCR press release.

He added that, "Following the issuance of the Royal Directives to allocate $20 million in response to the most recent Rohingya crisis, KSRelief has initiated a number of key projects and has worked closely in coordination with UNHCR and the government of Bangladesh to attend to the most urgent humanitarian needs of the Rohingya refugees". The repatriation did not begin as planned due to the lack of safety guarantees for those willing to return.

The prosecutor's office had collected information from various United Nations agencies, media and non-profits like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, among others, to document the alleged abuses suffered by the minority, whom Myanmar considers Bangladeshi migrants and denies citizenship rights.

Myanmar has said that the International Criminal Court (ICC) has no jurisdiction over the country and hence can not try it over allegations that hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas were deported to neighbouring Bangladesh. The agency, which is responsible for the operation of camps hosting hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas in Bangladesh, said the refugees must "see concrete progress in relation to their legal status and citizenship, security and their ability to enjoy basic rights at home in Rakhine state" before considering returning.

"Such concrete measures would help demonstrate to refugees that the Government of Myanmar is committed to a sustainable solution".
