This resolution would condemn the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya and call for an immediate restoration of humanitarian access to the state of Rakhine in Burma. It would condemn attacks against civilians by Burma’s security services and call for an end to such attacks, while also condemning attacks carried out by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army but warning that those don’t justify the human rights violations carried out in response.
The resolution would also call on Burma’s government and security forces to implement the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State, including those relating to justice, reconciliation, humanitarian aid, and citizenship. It would urge support and access for the United Nations Fact Finding Mission to Burma, and call on Burma’s government to allow refugees to voluntarily return to Burma without undue restriction and to change laws that have contributed to insecurity in the state of Rakhine.
As a concurrent resolution this legislation could be approved by both chambers of Congress but wouldn’t have the force of law.
