France welcomes new United Nations special envoy to Myanmar

"One is an ICC [International Criminal Court] referral". She stressed the importance of Bangladesh officials using the designated forms agreed upon by both countries as early as possible for verification, it said.

United Nations Security Council member Mansour Ayyad Al Otaibi (C) talks as delegation members Karen Piece (L) and Gustavo Adolfo Meza Cuadra Velasquez look on during a press conference at the Hazrat Shah Jalal International Airport in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka on April 30. This was the council's first visit to Southeast Asia since ambassadors visited East Timor in 2012.

"The Government of Myanmar is pleased to working in partnership with the United Nations to deal with many serious challenges that our country faces" said Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.

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

The clashed initially broke out in 2011, the recent violence hints at another case of ethnic cleansing.

He denied that soldiers under his command had committed sexual violence during the crackdown, contradicting hundreds of testimonies recorded by global organizations in Cox's Bazar. As of last month, there were more than 1.1 million forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals in Bangladesh.

US President Donald Trump has assured Bangladesh of continuing to exert its pressure on Myanmar to create necessary conditions for the safe and voluntary return of the Rohingyas to their homeland.

Reports on the number of Rohingya killed since the start of the military operation are close to that of the years-long war in Yemen, which has included over three years of aerial bombardment by Saudi-led forces.

Since then, Washington has been conducing an examination that could be used to prosecute the armed forces for crimes against humanity.

An ICC prosecutor asked the worldwide tribunal in April to rule on whether the court can exercise jurisdiction over the alleged deportation of the Rohingya from Myanmar to Bangladesh, even though Myanmar is not a member of the ICC.

Pierce parried a journalist's question about whether the United Nations should make a referral to the International Criminal Court to investigate the atrocities alleged to have been carried out by Myanmar security forces, acknowledging only that it could be one avenue of investigation. "So the investigation can not have that much impact".

Security Council delegation wrapped up its visits to Bangladesh and Myanmar on Tuesday, and expressed hope that refugees from the conflict-stricken Rakhine state in Myanmar could return quickly and safely to their homes, a spokesman said.

The U.N. and rights groups have asked Myanmar to guarantee the safety and basic rights of the Rohingya, who are considered illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and subject to systematic discrimination.

"The United States is deeply grateful to the government of Bangladesh for its generous humanitarian response to the Rohingya crisis", the USA president said.

"We all know that people from Bangladesh's refugee camps can't return home in the short term, so they need to be in the proper shelters during this season", he said.

The State Counsellor said, "The basis for return must be that it is safe, dignified and voluntary".

Myanmar signed an agreement with Bangladesh on the return of displaced people from Bangladesh in November past year, announcing a readiness to start the process on January 23.
