France reiterates concern over treatment of Rohingya Muslims

French officials have once again expressed “deep concern” over the treatment of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and urged the government to find a peaceful solution. French Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Agnes Romatet-Espagne said France had been concerned for some time about “violence and forced movements” of people in the state of Arakan, “notably against the Rohingya community.”

“We are calling for an end to violence and demanding the Burmese security forces assure the protection of the civilian populations and their property and that they guarantee the re-establishment of safe, humanitarian access,” she said.
