UN calls for appointment of special envoy to Myanmar

More than 6,50,000 Muslim Rohingya have fled the mainly Buddhist country since the military operation was launched in Rakhine state in late August. Many people died in that raid and more were lost. The UN has been unable to take tougher action against Myanmar.

"The Muslim world" is a geopolitical reality in a way in which few other transnational cultural phenomena are.

Yildirim, accompanied by Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag, distributed food to the Rohingya refugees and toys to children.

On the occasion of Christmas and New Year, the ERC and the whole Rohingya community thanked everyone all over the world who has tried to help them in their dire conditions and sought to make many hungry and innocent Rohingya children happy, the statement explained.

Responding to international pressure, Suu Kyi's civilian government signed an agreement with Bangladesh to start the repatriation of the stateless Muslim refugees within two months. The 2018 war games are expected to be held in February. The article does not speculate. Those arriving in Bangladesh have described horrific crimes committed against them and their families - from the burning down of entire villages and rape of women and girls, to the murder of infants and mass shooting of civilians. The government has stockpiled material and started breaking ground for 41 modular houses. The chances are that whole generations will now spend their lives in Bangladesh as refugees. But here once again, we have a situation where the rhetoric is great, but what lies underneath it is an ugly mess.

Five years later, those camps remain home to 120,000 people. Mothers regularly die in childbirth. But at minimum, we will have a team dinner in the evening.

Nevertheless, aside from the fact that it serves to obscure such uncomfortable facts, the shared global identity Muslims have could have beneficial aspects as well.

Cengiz, together with the association's deputy head Turan Yalcin and International Relations Coordinator Yavuz Inan, is at Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh to review the agency's ongoing housing project.

Anagha Neelakantan, Asia Director of the International Crisis Group, meanwhile, warned of potential security risks.

Addressing the special session, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein said Myanmar's security forces may be guilty of genocide against the Rohingyas. The Pakistani army did the same in Bangladesh in 1971.

An estimated one million forcibly displaced Myanmar citizens have been living in Bangladesh. It should be for residents inside Myanmar to decide.

I remember seeing bodies strewn around in the streets of the port city of Chittagong during the first few weeks of the Pakistani military occupation in Bangladesh. "Emphasis must be placed on wish of local Rakhine ethnic people who are real Myanmar citizens".

"Of course I beat my wife", said Sadrul Ameen, who arrived in a Bangladeshi refugee camp three months ago with his pregnant wife and child. On the one hand, you can feel sympathy for them because they are fleeing a war zone.

Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Logan, a Pentagon spokesman, said Thailand has invited Myanmar to act as an observer in the annual "Cobra Gold" exercise, which will involve thousands of military personnel, according to Reuters.

The crucial JWG with 15 each from Bangladesh and Myanmar will oversee the repatriation of over 600,000 Rohingya refugees who have taken shelter in Bangladesh to escape ethnic violence in the latter.

Bangladesh wants them to be involved, sources say.
