Cox's' Bazar (Bangladesh): A UN Security Council delegation is in Bangladesh for a firsthand look at the plight of some 700,000 Rohingya Muslims who have fled Myanmar to escape military-led violence and are seeking UN protection to return home.

The delegation members briefed Sheikh Hasina about their visit to Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar.

"It's very necessary to come and see everything at place here in Bangladesh and Myanmar".

At Kutupalong, hundreds of refugees staged a protest.

Security Council envoys visited Hasina in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, before travelling to Myanmar for meetings with its government leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, and military Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing later on Monday.

Myanmar officials have denied the allegations and blamed Arakan Rohingya Salavation Army (ARSA) insurgents for provoking the crackdown by launching coordinated attacks on police and army outposts in Rakhine in late August.

After the influx of more than 700,000 Rohingya Muslims into Bangladesh due to persecution by the Myanar forces since 25 August 2017, there is large scale criticism that the United Nations has failed to protect the Rohingya people or to take tough measures to compel Myanmar to comply with worldwide human rights laws and rules.

The delegates include envoys of five permanent members - China, France, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States - and 10 non-permanent members - Bolivia, Côte d'Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Peru, Poland and Sweden - elected for two-year terms by the General Assembly.

Gustavo Meza-Cuadra, the Peruvian ambassador to the United Nations, led the delegation.

"I think we have witnessed the magnitude of the refugee crisis and very tragic situation of some of the families", he said. But the process has not yet begun and United Nations officials have expressed misgivings on whether the climate is safe enough for the refugees to return to Rakhine. The U.N. refugee agency and Bangladesh recently finalized a memorandum of understanding that said the repatriation process must be "safe, voluntary and dignified.in line with worldwide standards".

The UN Security Council is visiting Burma and Bangladesh starting this week to assess the state of the Rohingya.

"The problem there lies in their expulsion, treatment and the fact that they had to flee to Bangladesh", she said.

Myanmar has denied the widespread accounts of violence against the persecuted Rohingya Muslim community in Rakhine. They're derided as "Bengalis", and many in Myanmar believe they are illegal migrants from Bangladesh.

Since August past year, more than 700,000 ethnic Muslims have been displaced from the Rakhine state at the hands of the Myanmar military.

"We want restoration of our citizenship under Rohingya ethnicity".

"We are not Bengali, we are Rohingya". Today, the team will visit Myanmar to see the refugee crisis from the other side of the Bangladesh border.

Hasina said Bangladesh has already carried out the biometric registration of the Rohingyas who entered Bangladesh amid atrocities by Myanmar law-enforcement agencies.

He said he lost a brother, an uncle and a nephew after Myanmar soldiers shot them dead. "So things are happening now and we will continue our discussion", he said, adding that this will remain a top priority once they return to NY.
