UN adopts consensus resolution on Rohingyas and other minorities in Myanmar
The UN General Assembly third committee adopted a consensus resolution asking to ensure accountability for human rights violations against the Rohingya and other minorities in Myanmar.

The resolution jointly sponsored by the European Union (EU) and Organisation for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) called for structural reforms to address the root cause of discrimination against the minorities in the country. A total of 107 countries co-sponsored the resolution which is the highest since 2017.

The resolution calls on Myanmar to lift restrictions on providing access to UN human rights representatives all over the country including in the conflict areas. The resolution commends Bangladesh for hosting the Rohingyas and for providing humanitarian assistance to them.

Bangladesh permanent representative to the UN Rabab Fatima called the adoption of the Rohingya resolution for the first time by consensus as demonstration of the international community’s strong resolve to end the crisis.

Responding to the adoption of the resolution at the UN, Foreign Minister of Bangladesh Dr. A K Adbul Momen said that it has a political value as it showed interest of all countries including China and Russia in resolving the crisis. Dr. Momen said that the UN General Assembly resolutions are not binding but he expressed the hope that there would be progress on this issue at the UN Security Council also. He said that the resolution should pave the way for ensuring safe and dignified return of Rohingyas to their homeland.
