Level UN team meets Myanmar leader in Rohingya probe

Level UN team meets Myanmar leader in Rohingya probe

The diplomats, who visited the sprawling camps and border points where about 700,000 Rohingya have taken shelter, said their visit was an opportunity to see the situation firsthand.

"We (however) don't want conflict, we want peaceful resolution to the crisis", she said. The UN must realise that Bangladesh has not created this crisis, Myanmar has, and the solution will have to come from it.

After visiting the camps in Bangladesh over the weekend the members will arrive in the Myanmar capital of Nay Pyi Taw on Monday.

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.

Bangladesh and Myanmar agreed in December to begin repatriating the refugees in January, but there were concerns among aid workers and Rohingya that they would be forced to return and face unsafe conditions in Myanmar. Thousands are believed to have been killed.

"Basically the message we convey is it is very important to improve the security conditions for the return of the refugees, and also collaboration with the global organization, particularly the United Nations", said Gustavo Meza-Cuadra, ambassador of Peru.

"We are determined to find an end and a solution for this crisis".

The UN refugee agency and Bangladesh recently finalized a memorandum of understanding that said the repatriation process must be "safe, voluntary and dignified ... in line with worldwide standards".

He had admitted to sheriff's deputies that he had been to the high school three times since the shootings. The law firm said it would give more information on the federal lawsuit at a press conference Thursday.

Asked whether the support China and Russian Federation have shown for the Myanmar military's clearance operations would affect the Security Council's work, Kuwait's permanent representative to the UN, Mansour Ayyad Al-Otaibi, said both countries were keen on finding a solution.

"The problem there lies in their expulsion, treatment and the fact that they had to flee to Bangladesh", she said.

The Rohingya have been persecuted for decades in Myanmar, where they are widely regarded as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and denied ctizenship.

Suu Kyi said it is important for the Bangladesh side to use prescribed forms agreed by both countries as early as possible for verification, according to the Myanmar State Councellor's Office.

The delegates avoided the term Rohingya in referring to the almost 700,000 people who have fled Myanmar's northern Rakhine State since late August, when militant attacks on security posts there set off a sweeping military clearance operation the United Nations and U.S. have referred to as ethnic cleansing.

Hundreds of refugees lined a road in Kutupalong camp on Sunday with signs that read "we demand justice" and "protected return to protected homeland".

"We want restoration of our citizenship under Rohingya ethnicity".

The United Nations General Assembly could alternatively create an worldwide inquiry into the most serious crimes committed against the Rohingya, similar to what the U.N. has done in Syria.

The flight of humanity has been heartbreaking for the local Rohingya community, one of the largest in Canada, and kids from eight to 22 have been trying to raise awareness of the systematic genocide of their people since they gathered back in 2013 to stage a crowd funded play at the University of Waterloo's Humanities Theatre to share that troubled history. "I will tell them my stories".
