Saudis call on Myanmar to allow Rohingyas to return

Deportation Of Rohingyas A Policy Decision Court Must Not Interfere Centre

The violence has sent more than 420,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing to neighbouring Bangladesh but many remain in Myanmar, hiding in fear and without food, aid workers say.

Violence in Rakhine State erupted on August 25th, when Rohingya militants launched deadly attacks on government outposts, provoking a fierce crackdown by the Myanmar military that has been greeted with widespread worldwide condemnation, including at the annual UN General Assembly this week.

Myanmar's minority Rohingya Muslims are living in the midst of a crisis.

Myanmar's second vice president Henry Van Thio addressed the annual U.N. General Assembly in the place of leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who a day earlier delivered a speech calling for patience.

He said a committee had been established under the social welfare minister to implement recommendations of an advisory commission chaired by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the government would establish an advisory board comprised of "eminent persons" from Myanmar and overseas.

Trump says he won't impose USA values overseas
If the USA is "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea ", he said . Trump also said the Iranian government is an "economically depleted rogue state" whose chief export is violence.

The Centre has also said that even Rohingya's registered with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees would be deported.

It is important to acknowledge the deep roots behind the Rohingya issue.

As the Myanmar government continues its campaign against Rohingya, forcing thousands to flee the country, Facebook has reportedly banned posts of one of the minority's groups, labeling it a "dangerous organization".

United States officials, for their part, have said that any return to sanctions imposed when Myanmar was under military rule is unlikely.

It would be wrong to turn a blind eye to what is seen as the most serious humanitarian crisis in Southeast Asia today. It is impossible to brand Rohingyas as militants and terrorists as Myanmar couldn't show any evidence to this end, so their claim has to be rejected outright, the recommendation suggests.

The president's statements were a repeat from Monday night, when he denounced the "growing crisis" in Venezuela as unacceptable.

More recently, the Myanmar military has justified attacks on civilians based on the fact Rohingya militants targeted police outposts and killed roughly a dozen members of security forces.

Suu Kyi skipped this year's U.N. General Assembly session and gave a speech in Naypyitaw on September 19.

Rajnath Singh chided human rights activists for criticising India's stance on Rohingyas.

Myanmar's army chief on Thursday said the Rohingya population "exploded" under British rule, blaming the former colonists for the current crisis. The first thing her government should do is implement the panel's recommendations.
