The UN Security Council has called on Myanmar to speed up efforts to ensure the safe return of the Rohingya and to hold accountable perpetrators of attacks against the Muslim minority.

The statement followed a fact-finding mission by the council’s ambassadors to Myanmar and Bangladesh from 28th April to 1st May to get a firsthand look at the crisis from the forced exodus of 700,000 Rohingya from Myanmar.

Council members said that in light of the importance of undertaking transparent investigations into allegations of human rights abuses and violations, urge the government of Myanmar to fulfil, based on respect for the rule of law, its stated commitment to holding accountable perpetrators of violence.

The council also urged Myanmar to step up its efforts to create conditions conducive to the safe, voluntary, and dignified return of Rohingya refugees to their homes in Rakhine state.
