UN Security Council delegation visiting N Rakhine

Myanmar's military to investigate itself on Rohingya rape allegations

Mansour Ayyad Al-Otaibi, the permanent representative of Kuwait to the UNSC was quoted as saying by the Myanmar Times, "What we really want is 'just to speed up the process of the return of refugees - a safe, voluntary and dignified return for them". Many have said they remain afraid to return.

"We need to question him more", Judge Ye Lwin told Police Captain Myo Lwin, one of the officers who had escorted the two journalists to the courthouse, at the end of the proceedings.

"It is very important to improve the security conditions for the return of the refugees [and] also improve cooperation with global organizations, particularly the United Nations", said Security Council President Gustavo Meza-Cuadra.

Al-Otaibi stressed the necessity of United Nations involvement in the repatriation process and negotiations between Myanmar and the United Nations refugee agency on potential cooperation.

A delegation of diplomats from the U.N. Security Council arrived in Sittwe, the capital of the volatile western Rakhine state, on Tuesday morning before heading to the conflict-torn Maungdaw area in the north of the Rakhine state.

Hasina reiterated her call to the worldwide community, including the United States, to continue mounting strong pressure on the Myanmar government to take back its nationals from Bangladesh.

Reports on the number of Rohingya killed since the start of the military operation are close to that of the years-long war in Yemen, which has included over three years of aerial bombardment by Saudi-led forces. They carried placards, some of which read "We want justice".

On November 6, the UN Security Council adopted its first presidential statement on the country since 2008, condemning the Rakhine attacks and the ensuing violence and calling on the government to address the root causes of the crisis.

Elon Musk isn't backing down despite weird remarks in Tesla call
Musk suggested that the reason he dismissed the questions was because the analysts didn't have "buy" ratings on Tesla stock. Actually, Musk responded to three separate questions from Tamberrino about the Model 3 and Model Y.

"Basically the message that we conveyed was that it was very important to improve the security conditions of the return of the refugees", he said, recalling the visit.

Nyo Aye informed one delegate that some of the refugees the United Nations team saw in displacement camps in Bangladesh before visiting Myanmar were not all from Rakhine state, but were Bangladeshis who themselves live in the camps.

Thousands of refugees gathered amid scorching heat at the camp to welcome the delegation.

"They asked us about education, freedom of movement and the burning of homes". She did not say how she knew the refugees were Bangladeshis.

She told the prime minister that USAID President Mark Green and CEO of the Carter Center and former ambassador Marry Ann Peters will visit Bangladesh soon to see the plight of Myanmar's displaced people.

On Monday, the envoys met senior government officials including State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi and military chief Min Aung Hlaing.

US Ambassador in Dhaka Marcia Bernicat handed the letter over to the PM during a courtesy call on her at the Gono Bhaban yesterday. Written in English by Roseanne Gerin.
