The United Nations urges Bangladesh to open border with Myanmar


United Nations Refugee Agency UNHCR has called on the government to allow people who want to escape to Bangladesh in the new violence that began in Myanmar. On Friday, the company issued a statement in this statement to the Bangladeshi government.

The UNHCR statement expresses concern about the humanitarian crisis that has caused the recent violence in Myanmar. They also said that the Bangladesh government's help is important in dealing with this disaster situation.

More than 150 people from Myanmar who crossed the Bandarban border have arrived in Bangladesh in recent days as a new wave of violence began in Rakhine and Chin province in Myanmar, bordering the Bangladeshi border. These new people are known by the Buddhist community of the country.

At the Geneva headquarters, spokesman Andres Maestres said: "Myanmar's new state of violence and security situation has deteriorated. Due to violence, many people are fleeing from Myanmar to Bangladesh in search of safe haven.

He said: "Many people will flee the country because of the violence that began in Myanmar, or fearing that many people will be sheltered in neighboring countries. That is why we are concerned about the humanitarian crisis."

"We are ready to cooperate with the government of Bangladesh to allow these people to shelter because of the violence that began in Myanmar," said spokesman Andres Mahasis.

It should be noted that when the Myanmar army launched the Rohingya campaign in Rakhine in August 2017, more than one million Rohingya migrated to Bangladesh and took refuge in Bangladesh. Recently, the border of Myanmar closes the border near Myanmar to prevent the infiltration of new Buddhists from Myanmar.
