Situation of human rights in Myanmar A/RES/70/233

On 23 December the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution reiterating its serious concern about the situation of the Rohingya "and of other minorities subject to marginalization and instances of human rights violations and abuses." The resolution called upon the government of Burma/Myanmar to protect the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all individuals, including Rohingyas; to allow for self-identification; ensure equal access to full citizenship and related rights; facilitate the safe and voluntary return of IDPs to their communities of origin; and ensure rapid and unhindered access to humanitarian assistance without discrimination.
