"We appreciate the actions of the government of Bangladesh in making every effort to deal with the urgent requirements of food, clothing and shelter for the large number of refugees that have placed a huge demand on its resources". "We have a monumental task ahead of us to protect these extremely vulnerable children".

Since August 25, more than 370,000 of Burma's Rohingya population has been forced to flee, she tweeted. Myanmar said the Rohingya were terrorists, but human rights groups and Western governments said the military response was too heavy-handed.

There is little sympathy for Rohingya in a country where the end of military rule has unleashed some old communal animosities and the military campaign in Rakhine State is generally supported. "Muslims of Rakhine State must be granted nationality or, at least for now, a legal status so they can lead a normal life".

Some 380,000 Rohingya have fled across the border into neighboring Bangladesh and there have been growing appeals for Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi to speak out in defence of the Rohingya. He noted that the global community has called upon Suu Kyi to stop the violence and hold human rights abusers accountable, "but there has been no action to-date".

Anayat Ullah is a Rohingya Muslim living in Auckland who is urging the New Zealand Government to increase its refugee intake.

The document also lists their address in Rakhine state which has been the theatre of the recent Myanmar army crackdown against the Rohingyas.

Over 90,000 people have fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar in the past few days and many are still trapped on the border, devoid of basic necessities, United Nations officials claimed. The government itself has said "what needs to be done with them is being discussed".

Public figures on the other hand have not been shy about condemning Myanmar's role in the genocide of the Rohingya.

According to the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR, at least 2,70,000 Rohingya refugees have fled from the violence affected Myanmar's Northern Rakhine state and sought refuge in Bangladesh where the limited shelter capacity is already exhausted.

Security has deteriorated sharply in Rakhine since Aung San Suu Kyi's government sent thousands of troops into Rohingya villages and hamlets last October after nine policemen were killed by ARSA.

Swaraj added that the Indian government was trying to put pressure on Myanmar to stop the persecution of Rohingya Muslims.

That view was presented Friday by Canadian officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the seriousness of the three-week-old crisis that has helped transform Suu Kyi from a symbol of freedom to a target of worldwide derision.

On Thursday, the Senate's top Republican, Mitch McConnell, who has always been at the forefront of US policy toward Myanmar, came to Suu Kyi's defense.

The violence in Rakhine and the exodus of refugees is the most pressing problem Nobel Peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi has faced since becoming national leader a year ago. Bangladesh has received nearly 400,000 in two and a half weeks. Many diplomats will attend a session hosted by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and chaired by Turkey, and a second, smaller group of foreign ministers will convene at the invitation of their British counterpart.
