BD, Myanmar should implement Rohingya verification process: India

  • Print
UNB, Dhaka :
India has said Bangladesh and Myanmar should implement a systematic process of verification to facilitate the repatriation of Rohingyas living in Bangladesh.
The neighboring country said the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) should help Myanmar implement its responsibilities towards its own people. India made the opinion in its explanation prior to the vote on a resolution at the UNHRC on Tuesday. The Council had to encourage the two countries to work together to restore normalcy in Rakhine State, said India which abstained from voting on the draft resolution.
The UNHRC adopted a resolution in which it strongly condemned the alleged systematic and gross violations of human rights and abuses committed in Myanmar, in particular in Rakhine state, notably against persons belonging to the Rohingya Muslim community and other minorities. India preferred an abstention while China voted against the resolution. It requested the High Commissioner for Human Rights to track progress concerning the human rights situation of Rohingya people, and to provide oral updates to the Council for a period of three years. On the other hand, China has said the international community should encourage Bangladesh and Myanmar to work together to facilitate the repatriation of refugees.
