The special envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General called on the countries of the world to support and help the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh on Thursday night.

Iran PressAmerica: More than one million Rohingya Muslims fled the war and were massacred by the army and extremist Buddhists in Rakhine state on August 25, 2017. Thousands of Rohingya Muslims died and more than 700,000 fled to neighboring Bangladesh. UN investigators have warned that genocidal actions could recur.

On the five-year mark of the forced mass displacement of Rohingya from Myanmar’s Rakhine State, Bangladesh continues to show great generosity and leadership in hosting refugees, which requires renewed international attention and equitable burden-sharing by countries in the region and abroad, United Nations Special Envoy of the Secretary-General on Myanmar Noeleen Heyzer said today on her four-day mission to Bangladesh.

As the Secretary-General reiterated on this solemn occasion, following the military takeover in February 2021, the humanitarian, human rights and security situation in Myanmar has deteriorated. It is critical that the international community continue to seek comprehensive, durable and inclusive solutions to the crisis. We cannot let this become a forgotten crisis,” Special Envoy Heyzer said. 219
