United Nations refugee agency alarmed by surge in fleeing Rohingya migrants

UNHCR sources say that numerous new refugees came from the Buthidaung area in Myanmar's northern Rakhine state.

Instead, Rohingya are seen as illegal immigrants with freedoms restricted and rights denied, and are derided by ethnic Rakhine Buddhists, and much of the wider popular in Myanmar, which has seen a surge in Buddhist nationalism in recent years. "According to the rescued Rohingya, several others are still missing". Others said they anticipated violence from Myanmar police and security forces.

In December past year, the International Crisis Group (ICG) said in a report that the group of Rohingya Muslims that attacked Myanmar border guards in October 2016 had Islamist links.

Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi has faced criticism from the global community for not doing more to stop the violence. "There is also the arms trade embargo and we discuss regularly whether we should reward the reforms in Myanmar and look at gradual easing of that, or the opposite".

The document confirmed support for an existing European Union embargo on arms and equipment "that can be used for internal repression". The US removed most sanctions on Myanmar last autumn.

Officials say over half of the 800,000 refugees flooding out of Myanmar are under 18, and many are making the journey alone.

The UN has said that numerous new arrivals are traumatised after fleeing killings and burning villages.

The Rohingya issue is not Myanmar's internal affairs anymore, but a regional one, he said. "The problem and the solution lie with Myanmar". Furthermore, the dangers of food insecurity have exacerbated by military operations, the burning of villages, and the blocking of humanitarian aid.

Minister Mahmood Ali noted that the Myanmar army was strengthening their forces in Rakhine about a month before August 25. But he added United Nations agencies "wouldn't be undertaking this if we didn't think it was feasible".

"We'll be fine with anybody if all member states have an ASG assigned".

"We made a makeshift arrangement for shifting them to an island called "Bhasan Char" from Cox's Bazar. we need worldwide community's assistance including that of the United Kingdom for their relocation", she said.
