Allow fleeing Rohingyas to seek shelter in Bangladesh: UN


PV Desk : UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has urged the Bangladesh authorities to continue to allow the Rohingyas fleeing violence to seek safety in Bangladesh.
UN Secretary General made the appeal recognising that Bangladesh has hosted generously refugees from Myanmar for decades.
“The Secretary-General is deeply concerned at the reports of civilians being killed during security operations in Myanmar’s Rakhine State,” Spokesman for the Secretary-General Stephane Dujarric quoted the UN boss as saying.
“The United Nations stands ready to provide all the necessary support to both Myanmar and Bangladesh in that regard,” he said.
The Secretary-General fully supports the recommendations of the report by Kofi Annan and urges the government to effectively implement them, he said.
This latest round of violence comes after the attacks on Myanmar security forces on August 25.
