The United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution on the "Human Rights Situation of Rohingya Muslims and other Minorities in Myanmar" urging the international community to continue providing humanitarian assistance.

The resolution at the 47th session of the council in Geneva was the first to be adopted without a vote since the massive influx of the Rohingya into Bangladesh following a military crackdown in August 2017.

During the session, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Bangladesh to the UN in Geneva Mustafizur Rahman said Bangladesh sheltered the Rohingyas on humanitarian grounds, but it is regrettable that even in the last four years, their repatriation has not happened.
