NGO Statement on Asia and the Pacific
Agenda Item 3. a) ii.
This statement has been drafted in consultation with, and is delivered on behalf of, a wide range of
NGOs and attempts to reflect the diversity of views within the NGO community.
NGOs are appalled that the new Government of Myanmar reaffirmed in Parliament existing policies
of exclusion and restrictions against the Rohingya, condemning them to continued statelessness and
subjecting them to the worst forms of discrimination.
