Kazakhstan has expressed its disapproved the crimes took in Rakhine State over the situation in Myanmar and spoke for the fast and comprehensive solution to the humanitarian crisis in this country with the participation of the international community at the session of the Security Council in New York, a press service of the Kazakh Foreign Ministry reports.

Kazakhstan expressed serious concern about the results of investigations by the international mission and condemned the crimes in Rakhine State. "The news about outrageous, mass and systematic violations of human rights in Myanmar, including discrimination on ethnic and religious grounds grouds, the ongoing large-scale deportation and systematic harassment of the Rohingya Muslims are shocking," said Kazakh Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Kanat Tumysh.  

The Kazakh Representatives noted that full disclosure of the information on the violent crimes and the prosecution of culprits will be one of the preconditions to return Rohingya Muslims back to their homes. 

More than millions of representatives of the Rohingya, with a majority of women and children, still have to stay in extremely poor conditions in camps for refugees in Bangladesh.
