United Nations fears "further exodus" of Muslim Rohingya into Bangladesh

The Rohingya refugee crisis is considered the "world's fastest-growing refugee emergency" after beginning to flee August 25, stated Antonio Guterres, the United Nations Secretary-General.

Amidst alarming reports that Bangladesh now has a bigger population of Rohingyas than Myanmar, the Eastern neighbour has asked India to not mix up the humanitarian and security aspects of the conflict in Rakhine.

Speaking at a press conference near the United Nations office in Geneva, humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock said the lack of access in Myanmar was "unacceptable".

Worldwide aid groups fear tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslims who remain in northern parts of Rakhine are in urgent need of food, medicine and shelter after over a month of military operations.

Addressing a joint press event, Tusk said the two sides wanted de-escalation of tensions and full adherence to worldwide obligations in Myanmar and access of people to humanitarian aid.

On whether there has been radicalisation among Rohingya in Bangladesh, Haque said he has been to refugee camps several times in the last few weeks but "there has not been any sign of radicalisation in these people".

Queues for food are continuing to swell in refugee camps in Cox's Bazar, as more Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in neighboring Myanmar make the border crossing.

The Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs called for unimpeded access, and said a United Nations team should be able to get on the ground in Rakhine in the next few days.

About 900,000 doses of cholera vaccine are due to arrive this weekend and a vaccination campaign should start on Tuesday.

Myanmar troops launched a crackdown in the Rakhine state in response to attacks on three border posts in 2016 that killed nine police officers, since then many Rohingya Muslims have tried to move into Bangladesh illegally.

Communities in Chittagong share close cultural, religious and linguistic ties with the Rohingya, and images on social media purportedly showing abuses against the Muslim minority in mainly Buddhist Myanmar have aroused strong sympathy in Bangladesh.

"Myanmar has made a proposal to take back the Rohingya refugees", the minister told reporters.

With New Delhi lending an ear to Bangladeshi concerns, Foreign Secretary Haque now says India and Bangladesh are on the same page even as he praised India's stance including at the UNHRC.

The Rohingya are regarded as illegal immigrants in Myanmar and most are stateless.

"We don't want to take actions that exacerbate their suffering".
