The resolution brought by Bangladesh has been finalized by all member countries of OIC and European Union

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has adopted a resolution urging Myanmar to create conducive environment in northern Rakhine state and convince Rohingyas to return with full safety and dignity as per the bilateral agreement with Bangladesh.

The resolution was adopted by a vote of 37 in favour, two against and seven abstentions during the ongoing 42 regular session of the UNHRC in Geneva, according to a press release of Bangladesh permanent mission in Geneva received in Dhaka on Thursday. 

The resolution, brought by Bangladesh was finalized by all member countries of OIC and European Union, the press release added.

The resolution laid emphasis on intensified investigation over all human rights violation and atrocities committed against Rohingyas in Myanmar for bringing perpetrators to justice under all national, regional and international criminal judicial system.

The United Nations also highly lauded the Bangladesh government for giving shelter to Rohingyas as well as urged the international community to be partner of Bangladesh for continuing humanitarian assistance until the displaced people are going back to their homeland.

During addressing the 42nd Session, Permanent Resident of Bangladesh mission in Geneva Ambassador Shamim Ahsan said this resolution would be a landmark to ensure accountability and justice against indescribable atrocities committed against Rohingyas.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had opened the border for forcefully displaced Rohingyas on humanitarian ground, but Myanmar failed to create conducive environment inside Rakhine even after two years of the influx, he said.
