US lauds Bangladesh for hosting Rohingyas
The United States has highly praised Bangladesh government for the generosity in responding to the humanitarian crisis of the Rohingyas fleeing the persecution in Myanmar’s Rakhine state. “We are very concerned by the United Nations announcement on September 8 that an estimated 270,000 Rohingya have arrived in Bangladesh since August 25 following allegations of serious human rights abuses in Burma’s Rakhine State, including violent attacks and mass burnings of villages,” US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in statement on September 9. “We continue to coordinate closely with our partners, including the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the International Organization for Migration to provide emergency assistance to these individuals. Since October 2016, the US government has provided nearly $63 million in humanitarian assistance for vulnerable communities displaced in and from Burma throughout the region. “We applaud the government of Bangladesh’s generosity in responding to this humanitarian crisis and appreciate their continued efforts to ensure assistance reaches the affected population,” he added. Nearly 300,000 Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh and 30,000 non-Muslim civilians have been displaced inside Myanmar after the military launched counter-offensive following attacks by ARSA insurgents on 30 police posts and an army base on August 25.
