European Commission: Refrain from violence against civilians
The European Commission’s commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management has called on all sides to de-escalate tensions and fully observe international human rights laws. Commissioner Christos Stylianides has also called on them to particularly refrain from any violence against civilians. Stylianides made the aforementioned statements on the humanitarian situation in Myanmar in a press release issued on Tuesday from Brussels, Belgium. Thousands of Rohingya civilians, suffering greatly, have fled the violence across the border into Bangladesh. “We greatly appreciate the hospitality extended by the Government and people of Bangladesh for many decades. The assistance and protection of the Bangladeshi authorities regarding these new refugees is crucial until the situation in Rakhine State has stabilised and they can safely return,” he said. “They must not be turned back or deported,” he added. Commissioner Stylianides further reiterated the European Union’s commitment toward supporting every effort in bringing a return to aid deliveries in Rakhine state and to working tirelessly with all stakeholders to achieve this. “Unrestricted humanitarian access, including for aid workers, is critical to reaching 350,000 vulnerable people in Rakhine State,” he said in the statement. “They must be allowed to do their job to try to prevent the further deterioration of an already serious humanitarian situation,” he further said.
