The United Nations is calling on Bangladesh to open its border in Myanmar



The United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR, called on the government to allow people who want to flee to Bangladesh into new violence that began in Myanmar. On Friday, the company issued a statement in this statement to the government of Bangladesh.

The UNHCR statement expresses concern over the humanitarian crisis that has caused recent violence in Myanmar. They also said that the help of the Government of Bangladesh is important for dealing with such disasters.

More than 150 people from Myanmar crossing the border of Bandarban have climbed to Bangladesh in recent days, with recently launched new violence in the province of Rakhine and Chin, which borders Bangladesh. These new people are a famous Buddhist community in the country.

In the headquarters of Geneva, spokesman Andres Maestres said: "The new state of violence in Myanmar and the security situation have deteriorated. Many people are fleeing from Myanmar to Bangladesh for a safe haven.

He said: "A lot of people will flee from the country because of the violence that began in Myanmar, or are afraid that many people will decide to shelter in the neighboring countries. That is why we are concerned about the humanitarian crisis."

"We are ready to work with the Bangladeshi government to enable those people who will resort to the violence that began in Myanmar," said spokesman Andres Mahasis.

It should be noted that when the Rohingya campaign in Rakhine started in Myanmar in August 2017, more than one million Rohingya moved to Bangladesh and settled in Bangladesh. Recently, the Myanmar border closed the border near Myanmar to prevent a new infiltration of Buddhists from Myanmar.
