News Conference: Rohingya Insurgents and Dmitry Polyansky

news conference: Russia's ambassador to the United Nations, Dmitry Polyansky, said he and his fellow team members would not look away from the crisis after their visit, though he warned that there are no simple solutions, according to CTV. It's very necessary to come and see everything at place here in Bangladesh and Myanmar. The diplomats, who visited the sprawling camps and border points where about 700,000 Rohingya have taken shelter, said their visit was an opportunity to see the situation firsthand. But there is no magic solution, there is no magic stick to solve all these issues, he said at a news conference at the Kutupalong refugee camp in the coastal town of Cox's Bazar. The recent spasm of violence in Myanmar began when Rohingya insurgents staged a series of attacks on Aug. 25 on about 30 security outposts and other targets. The diplomats will conclude their three-day visit to Bangladesh on Monday, when they leave for Myanmar. ( As reported in the news.
