Last quote about Rohingya

Aung San Suu Kyi
We have disassociated ourselves from the resolution because we do not think that the resolution is in keeping with what is actually happening on the ground. But those recommendations which will divide further the two communities in Rakhine we will not accept, because it will not help to resolve the problems that are arising all the time. I am not sure quite what you mean by saying that we have not been concerned at all with regards to the allegations of atrocities that have taken place in the Rakhine. We have been investigating them and have been taking action.feedback

Zaw Htay

These are extremely serious allegations and we are deeply concerned. We will be immediately investigating these allegations through the investigation commission, led by Vice-President U Myint Swe.feedback

Mohammad Mizanur Rahman

We are fearful that the nature of the Rohingya people is not good – they have a record of involvement in drugs and smuggling, so if they are moved here, together with the pirates who rob, we will be in big trouble.feedback

Shahriar Alam

After considering all aspects, we have taken a firm decision to shift them to the island. Still, this is a very early stage of our decision. We also have plans to provide them poultry or livestock for their livelihood. But all these arrangements are temporary. Myanmar will have to take them back. They are living in inhumane conditions. Taking the Rohingya back and giving them citizenship is the only solution to the crisis. They are getting involved in drugs and other unlawful activities. If we could have confined them in the camp, it would not have happened.feedback

Aye Aye Soe

The people that Bangladesh is saying are on their side, we have to verify that they are from Myanmar. We can't just accept on face value if they say they are from Myanmar. If they are found to be from Myanmar, we will take them back and of course we will do that in due time.feedback

Najib Razak

We appeal to the government of Myanmar - said Najib - to put an immediate end to all discriminatory actions and attacks against Rohingya. And that the culprits are brought to justice.feedback

Najib Razak

For a start, the killing must stop. The violation of women and girls must stop. The persecution of your fellow men and women, simply on the grounds that they are Muslim, must stop.feedback

Najib Razak

It is incumbent on us all to do what we can to save them from the humanitarian tragedy they are suffering.feedback

Aye Soe

For the border situation, an operation is still in progress to create stability, so I don't think there will be a lot of results from this first-time meeting. We need to make sure how many people arrived and where they are from, but no one can confirm exactly.feedback

Aye Soe

You cannot just look at one incident and think, that's the whole thing that is happening. Come back with something concrete, and we will give you back something concrete.feedback

Myat Thu

I will say there are so many 'isolated incidents' in Rakhine state.feedback

Phil Robertson - Human Rights Watch

Quite clearly, there is a major domestic political dimension to this, as Najib positions himself as the champion of downtrodden Muslims in the region, which he and United Malays National Organization (UMNO) obviously believe will be popular in the Malay Muslim heartland. And of course, talking about the Rohingya is a good way to change the subject from the 1MDB scandal.feedback

Islam Muhammad Kassim

Rohingya people are hoping something may change in Myanmar - and also in Malaysia where many of us live.feedback

Maung Khin

The Rakhine issue is an internal affair. We cannot accept interference from outsiders. We don't need foreigners for our internal affairs. This shows how the government mishandles the case.feedback

Ryan Aherin - Verisk Maplecroft

The situation illustrates that the NLD-led government has made little progress towards improving transparency and accountability since it took office in March 2016.feedback

Ryan Aherin - Verisk Maplecroft

The government's response suggests that it either has no control over the still-powerful military, or considers protecting the ethnic minority as too politically charged in light of the country's vocal Buddhist nationalist majority.feedback

Muhammed Noor

The Myanmar government says the claims are all fabricated but they are not fabricated. This movement has to continue, to pressure the government to stop the killing.feedback

Khairy Jamaluddin

While we've known for a while that Myanmar will be the host, this (decision) is based on recent reports from Rakhine that showed proof of attacks, that reportedly show evidence of genocide. We must continue to speak up.feedback

Zaw Htay

The international community misunderstood us because of Rohingya lobbyists who distributed fabricated news. No one in the world would accept attacks on security forces, killings and looting of weapons.feedback

Khairy Jamaluddin

I raised this issue in the cabinet last week. I will do so again this week and stand guided by decision.feedback

Nurul Izzah Anwar

In 1980, we withdrew from the Olympic Games that is more prestigious to protest the invasion of Soviet troops on Afghanistan.feedback

Aye Soe

They are using our country, our region as a base...with the intention of disrupting the area, causing unrest, chaos in the area, they are doing this to get international attention, to pressure Myanmar.feedback

Phil Robertson - Human Rights Watch

This is a recipe for rights abuses against the Rohingya. The Burmese government is foolhardy to think they will be able to control the local recruits operating on a basis of bias against the Rohingya people.feedback

Kyaw Mya Win

The villagers have become insurgents, including women in the village.feedback

Anwarul Azim

Early Tuesday, 86 Rohingya including 40 women and 25 children were pushed back by the BGB (Border Guard Bangladesh) from the Teknaf border point. All of them tried to enter Bangladesh and came by two engine-operated boats. Now we have beefed up our patrolling and additional forces have been engaged to ensure security in the border area.feedback

Zaw Htay

There's no logical way of committing rape in the middle of a big village of 800 homes, where insurgents are hiding.feedback

John Kirby

While it's without question that [the Rohingya] continue to face persecution, we did not determine that it was on the level of genocide.feedback
