Rohingya Refugees: Resolution and End Discrimination
rohingya refugees: It is virtually certain to be formally adopted by the 193-member world body in December, according to CTV. Among those voting against the resolution were Myanmar neighbours China, Cambodia and Laos along with Russia. The General Assembly's human rights committee approved the resolution by a vote of 142-10, with 26 abstentions. Bangladesh, which hosts 1.1 million Rohingya refugees, voted in favour. It urgently calls on Myanmar's government to end discrimination and provide a path to citizenship for the embattled minority. The resolution expresses deep concern that violence by Myanmar's military against the Rohingya has forced over 723,000 people to flee to Bangladesh since August 2017. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
