Who stands where on Rohingya
US The United States has expressed deep concern about the violence in Rakhine. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert: “There has been a significant displacement of local populations following serious allegations of human rights abuses, including mass burnings of Rohingya villages and violence conducted by security forces and also armed civilians. We call on Myanmar to allow better access to the country for reporters and humanitarian aid groups.” EU The European Union (EU) has condemned the ongoing violence against the Rohingyas in Rakhine. High Representative of European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and also the Vice-President of the Commission Federica Mogherini: “The situation in Northern Rakhine State in Myanmar is extremely serious and has our [EU] full attention. There is an urgent need for a de-escalation of tensions, on all sides, and for full observance of international human rights law.” UK The United Kingdom called on Aung San Suu Kyi to “stop the violence” that has broken out against Rohingya Muslims in the country. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson: “Aung San Suu Kyi is rightly regarded as one of the most inspiring figures of our age but the treatment of the Rohingya is alas besmirching the reputation of Burma. I hope she can now use all her remarkable qualities to unite her country, to stop the violence and to end the prejudice that afflicts both Muslims and other communities in Rakhine.” Turkey Turkey has pledged to raise the issue at the United Nations and to press Myanmar to stop “Rohingya genocide”. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan: “You watched the situation that Myanmar Muslims are in. You saw how villages have been burned ... Humanity remained silent to the massacre in Myanmar”. Bangladesh Bangladesh has pressed Myanmar to resolve the crisis and take back the Rohingya. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina: “People are fleeing to Bangladesh after losing everything. We are trying our best to help them. In addition, we are pressuring the Myanmar government so that they take back their people from our country. That’s what we want.” India India has expressed concern about “extremist violence” in Myanmar and condemned the loss of life among members of the Myanmar security forces. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi: “We hope that all stakeholders together can find a way out in which unity and territorial integrity of Myanmar is respected. We share concerns about the extremist violence in the Rakhine state and especially the violence against the security forces and how innocent lives have been affected and killed.” China China said in a statement on August 31 that it condemns the violent attacks that occurred in Rakhine, and “as a friendly neighbour,” it supports Myanmar’s efforts to maintain peace in the region. Earlier this year China offered to mediate the diplomatic row between Myanmar and Bangladesh over a previous flight of Rohingya, as both nations see the Muslim minority as the other side’s problem. In May, Xi also assured Suu Kyi that China would continue to help with Myanmar’s peace process. Myanmar Myanmar has insisted that its security forces are working to stabilise Rakhine in the face of a terrorist threat and has denied reports of atrocities. Leader Aung San Suu Kyi: “That kind of fake information … was simply the tip of a huge iceberg of misinformation calculated to create a lot of problems between different communities and with the aim of promoting the interest of the terrorists.”
