UN Security Council Statements on Burma
Recounting the haunting stories of Rohingya refugees they met during a recent mission to
Bangladesh and Myanmar, Security Council members described mass rapes, attacks
on children and the razing of entire villages, stressing that the visit had “awakened their
collective conscience” into robust and concerted action.
Calling on the Myanmar Government to end the excessive military force and intercommunal violence that had devastated the Rohingya community in Rakhine State, the Security Council urged the implementation of agreed‑upon mechanisms to assist return of those who have fled and to ensure access for humanitarian aid.
