On 21 November 2014 the Third Committee adopted an annual resolution on the situation of human rights in Myanmar. The resolution urged the government to "accelerate its efforts to address discrimination, human rights violations, violence, hate speech, displacement and economic deprivation affecting various ethnic and religious minorities, and attacks against Muslims and other religious minorities" and reiterated serious concern about the situation of the Rohingya, including further instances of violence and other abuses in the past year, calling upon the government to protect the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all inhabitants of Rakhine State regardless of legal status, and allow freedom of movement, equal access to full citizenship, and allow self-identification for the Rohingya.
