Bangladesh Requests Myanmar Troop Withdrawal from Common Border

Bangladesh Requests Myanmar Troop Withdrawal from Common Border

Three Nobel Peace laureates yesterday accused Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi and the nation's military of genocide for their role in violence that has forced hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims to flee to Bangladesh.

On Thursday, Myanmar soldiers and police, estimated to number more than 200, came to the border fence and appeared to be moving heavy weapons including mortars to the area, said a Bangladesh army official.

Around 17,000 Rohingyas have been living in no man's land between the countries, including almost 7,000 in Tambru, since Myanmar launched a military operation dubbed "ethnic cleansing" in the Rakhine State on Aug 25 past year.

The discussion also touched upon the EU-Bangladesh relations, including the political situation in Bangladesh.

They asked the Rohingyas to move away from the no man's land, using loudspeaker for hours, and scaring the members of the ethnic minority, Naikkhyangchharhi Upazila Executive Officer or UNO Sarwar Kamal told UNI.

Curtis conveyed president Trump's deep appreciation for Bangladesh for hosting more than a million forcibly displaced Rohingyas from Myanmar. The area is formally still within the country's territory, but is widely referred to as a "no man's land".

"This is not like we are trying to invade Bangladesh and fight against them".

Bangladesh's border guard director, Brigadier General Mujibur Rahman said his agency has asked to meet with Myanmar border guards to resolve their concerns.

The BGB official, however, told the briefing that their note also demanded an explanation on "what other reasons prompted them for the troops mobilization on borders".

"She should tell the truth or she should resign", said Karman by phone from Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.

They were among the first to flee Myanmar when the violence erupted a year ago and set up makeshift shelters in no man's land in the weeks before Bangladesh agreed to let the Rohingya into the country.

Bangladesh has been negotiating a repatriation deal for the thousands of Rohingya refugees it is housing.

The process was delayed at the last moment due to lack of preparations and protests by the refugees, who fear returning to Myanmar without guarantees of basic safety and citizenship.

Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Didier Reynders has expressed concern about the continued violation of human rights of Rohingya community in Myanmar's Rakhine state. In a report last December, the global humanitarian group said the deaths of 71.7 percent, or 6,700 Rohingya, were caused by violence.

United Nations staff have not been allowed access to the area to carry out an investigation.
