Bangladesh restricted the movement of Rohingya refugees Saturday, banning them from leaving overcrowded border areas where over 400,000 who have fled violence in neighboring Myanmar are living in squalid conditions.
Global pressure is mounting on Buddhist-majority Myanmar to end the security operation against the marginalised Rohingya Muslim community in Rakhine, which was triggered on August 25 when Rohingya militants attacked police posts.
Dhaka: Bangladesh has accused Myanmar of repeatedly violating its air space and warned that any more "provocative acts" could have "unwarranted consequences", raising the risk of a deterioration in relations already strained by the Rohingya refugee crisis.
Prime Minister Hasina will also urge the world leaders to play an effective role in stopping the genocide of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. The government says there is no such ethnicity as Rohingya and that members of the group are Bengalis who illegally migrated to Burma from Bangladesh.
The current humanitarian crisis began following an August 25 attack by the insurgent Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) on police and military posts in the northwestern state of Rakhine that had led to a violent offensive by the Myanmar Army.
The refugees have been fleeing to Bangladesh for three weeks to escape a military crackdown in Myanmar's Rakhine state, which the United Nations has said amounts to ethnic cleansing.
Antonio Guterres, the Secretary General of the world body has warned that Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi has "a last chance" to halt army offensive that has forced hundreds of thousands of the minority Rohingyas to flee overseas. United Nations officials are among those labeling the crisis as a clear instance of ethnic cleansing. Dozens of places have been burned and almost half of the 471 villages in the north of Rakhine had been completely or partly deserted, it said. Many of them are traumatised, malnourished and weak.
Modi took sides on Suu Kyi's government and declared all out support to Myanmar.
Iranian officials have voiced readiness to construct emergency camps and field hospitals for the refugees on Bangladesh's border with Myanmar.
