Myanmar to probe alleged violence against Rohingya

Swaraj will pay a two-day visit to Myanmar from May 10 during which key bilateral and regional issues, including the situation in the Rakhine state from where hundreds of thousands of persecuted Rohingya Muslims had fled following violence a year ago, are likely to be discussed.

"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.

Violence has no place in a democratic Myanmar and 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 Aung San Suu Kyi in her press release issued on May 2.

Russian Federation and China will veto any action against Myanmar owing to trade and military interests.

Rohingya refugees who fled Myanmar during a brutal crackdown now face a new danger: rain.

The recent spasm of violence in Myanmar began when Rohingya insurgents staged a series of attacks on August 25 on about 30 security outposts and other targets. That investigation led to a U.S. declaration of genocide and the imposition of economic sanctions against the Sudanese government, the news agency said.

An estimated 500,000 Rohingya people remaining behind in Myanmar are in need of humanitarian relief.

Although Bangladesh has indicated it would like to start with the return of 100,000 Rohingya, there are reports that Myanmar wishes to begin with 4,500 Hindus who are also refugees in Bangladesh. "The second would be for the Burmese government to do it themselves", she said.

Adams said it's important to note that while the U.N.is doing its job, the U.N. Security Council is a political body made up of governments and that, "they're not doing their job". "And we also mentioned the importance of the investigation regarding what happened here before the refugees went to Bangladesh".

"They asked us why we hate each other and how we can get along with each other again", she told RFA.

They aren't releasing names until all the families have been contacted, but "most of them already know and have come to the base". Ricardo Rossello expressed his sadness, tweeting that "our prayers are with the families of the Puerto Rican crew".

Al-Otaibi stressed the necessity of United Nations involvement in the repatriation process and negotiations between Myanmar and the United Nations refugee agency on potential cooperation.

In New York, U.N. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq noted at a briefing that around 500,000 Rohingya still live in Rakhine, "facing continued discrimination and marginalization, including around 130,000 men, women and children who are trapped in appalling conditions in camps".

He also pointed out that numerous Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, already living in poor and crowded conditions, face further misery with the early onset on the monsoon season, with a strong risk of landslides and flooding.

Lord Nazir Ahmed, the United Kingdom's minister of state for the Commonwealth and the United Nations, told reporters earlier in the week that Myanmar's agreement to the council visit and a previous visit by the U.N. special envoy for sexual violence in conflict "demonstrates the glimmer of hope in what has been a very dark chapter in human history in that part of the region".
