Rohingya crisis: Yunus, 11 Nobel laureates seek UN intervention - National

Dhaka: Nobel Laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus and 26 international eminent personalities have sent an open letter to the UN Security Council urging its intervention to end the Rohingya crisis in Rakhine state of Myanmar.

In the letter, Yunus and others called on UNSC to take decisive actions to stop the violence against Rohingya Muslims and bring permanent peace in the Rakhine state.

“We call on UNSC to intervene immediately by using all available means. We request you to take immediate action for cessation of indiscriminate military attack on innocent civilians that is forcing them to leave their home and flee their country to turn into stateless people,” the letter said.

“This is one of the decisive moments when bold and decisive actions are needed promptly when it is still possible to get it resolved,” they said in the letter.
