Idris, who conveyed his deepest sympathy over the plight of thousands of Rohingya Muslims, called on Myanmar government to stop the violence.

The report draws on more than 350 interviews in more than 46 towns and villages over an eight-month period since March 2016.

In response, Myanmar security forces started days of "clearing operations" they claimed were needed to tackle terrorism.

"We will be guided by the government of Myanmar in terms of the choice of projects", Ranganthan said.

The 11 MoUs also include one between the Election Commission and Union Election of Myanmar, the national level electoral commission of Myanmar.

"I am still waiting for my fellow Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to do the same", she added. He was responding to accusations that the army and police fired indiscriminately on civilians and razed Muslim Rohingya villages after the attacks on the police posts in Rakhine state.

Almost 150,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar for Bangladesh in less than two weeks, officials said on Wednesday after the United Nations chief warned there is a risk of ethnic cleansing in the former Burma that could destabilise the wider region.

On Tuesday, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman said authorities in Myanmar agreed to let Turkish officials into Rakhine to provide food and clothing.

He says Turkey will also deliver ambulances to Bangladesh to help it cope with the refugee flows, Cavusoglu said.

Pakistan, home to a large Rohingya community, has expressed "deep anguish" and urged the world body, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, to act.

Malaysia has summoned Myanmar's ambassador to express displeasure over violence in Rakhine.

Cavusoglu spoke Wednesday in Baku, Azerbaijan, before travelling to Bangladesh where he's expected to visit a refugee camp for Rohingya and oversee the delivery of humanitarian aid.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a three-day state visit to Myanmar, said on Wednesday that India is concerned about the "extremist violence" against security forces in Rakhine state.

During his stay in Myanmar, Prime Minister Modi will also visit Bagan, a heritage city where the Archaeological Survey of India is involved in restoration work of a temple and some pagodas, and Yangon where he will interact with members of the Indian community.
