The humanitarian situation for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh remains dire, with some 646,000 refugees newly arrived since 25 August 2017. At least 58% of them are children. Even if the pace of arrivals has slowed down, thousands of refugees continue to arrive every week, adding pressure on already heavily stretched resources on the ground.
ABU DHABI, 10th December, 2017 (WAM) -- The Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UNHCR, have discussed means for cooperation to reduce the dire humanitarian situation faced by refugees and displaced people in the region. The two sides also reviewed the status of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.
This came during a meeting between Fahd Abdulrahman bin Sultan, Deputy Secretary-General of the International Aid Department at the ERC and Khaled Khalifa, UNHCR's Regional Representative to the GCC Countries.
Myanmar and Bangladesh signed a bilateral “arrangement for return”. UNHCR stands ready to support the voluntary return of all Rohingya refugees in line with international standards.
