The Rohingya, an ethnic minority group from Myanmars Rakhine State, have endured decades of systematic discrimination, persecution, and violence at the hands of the countrys military. Their plight came to the worlds attention in 2017 when a brutal crackdown by Myanmars security forces forced over 740,000 Rohingya to flee across the border into neighboring Bangladesh, joining hundreds of thousands of others already languishing in squalid refugee camps. While the 2017 exodus was the most significant and most recent, it was not the first time Rohingya refugees sought sanctuary in Bangladesh. The first considerable influx occurred in 1992 after Myanmars military launched another campaign of violence and forced displacement against the Rohingya minority.

aprill 5, 2024

Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzia condemned the UK for calling an open session of the Security Council on Myanmar since “there are things that cannot be discussed in the ‘megaphone diplomacy’ mode” that the British insisted on. Thursday’s talks mostly focused on the situation in Rakhine State, which is where the Bangladeshi-originating Rohingya mostly resided prior to 2017’s conflict pushing most of them into that neighboring nation. Here are some background briefings:

To resolve the impasse over repatriating Rohingya Muslims, all relevant stakeholders must engage in dialogue.

The Rohingya issue has surged to the forefront of international concern, casting a long shadow over the prospects for political stability, social tranquility, and environmental viability in Southeast Asia. The quagmire, originating from Myanmar, extends its geopolitical tendrils, ensnaring not only its immediate neighbor, Bangladesh but also posing a broader threat to the Southeast Asian region.

Then came a campaign of ethnic cleansing that forced them to flee to a foreign country where they crowded into bamboo-and-tarp shelters. There they have waited years for a better life.

Meanwhile, Bangladeshi officials are reluctant to act in any way that might be perceived as taking sides between the junta and the ethnic Arakan Army; Bangladesh has perhaps started to understand there is a new sheriff in Rakhine, just across the Naf River.
