ICRC President in capital

UNB

President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Peter Maurer arrived Dhaka yesterday afternoon to observe ICRC's work in Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar, reports UNB. Before his arrival, the ICRC president visited Myanmar to see situation in Rakhine State. During his three-day visit, he will hold meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina apart from his meetings at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Home Affairs, among others.

An estimated 700,000 people left Myanmar for Bangladesh after the violence of August 2017 and many others in Rakhine have been displaced.

Access to food, healthcare, education and the necessities of life has been difficult for everyone. "Humanitarian organisations are doing their best to alleviate the suffering in very difficult circumstances, as the monsoon season advances. But 10 months on, too many people are still suffering too much, despite all the talking and all the efforts," said Peter Maurer.

"While the emergency response continues, there must be urgent progress - from humanitarians, development actors, and the authorities - on building sustainable solutions," he said.
