Turkey to begin first foreign aid deliveries to Rohingya Muslims”

"We need to find a decisive solution to this problem", Cavusoglu added.

The ensuing clashes and a military counter-offensive have killed at least 400 people and sent almost 146,000 Rohingya fleeing over the border to Bangladesh.

"UNHCR is gravely concerned about the continuing conflict in Myanmar and by reports that civilians have died trying to seek safety", the United Nations refugee agency said in a statement.

"Refugees who are arriving in Bangladesh are arriving in desperate conditions".

Mr Bayldon said Amnesty International is now struggling to get their human rights observers in due to the military sealing off the area but said those coming out are reporting "horrific abuse going on, rapes (and) widespread killings".

A group of Rohingya refugees takes shelter at the Kutuupalang makeshift refugee camp in Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh.

"We are running out of available space", she said.

Pakistan's Foreign Ministry released a statement saying it was "deeply concerned over reports of growing number of deaths and forced displacement of Rohingya Muslims" and urged Myanmar to investigate reports of atrocities against the community.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called upon the worldwide community to "seriously" pursue the issue of a growing refugee crisis in on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border. "That was why they dare not live there anymore and had to leave", Tin Soe, editor of the Bangladesh-based Kaladan news network, told VOA Burmese.

Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi said Wednesday that her government protects all citizens of the Rakhine district, where most of the fighting is taking place.

The European Union Tuesday issued a statement calling on both sides to de-escalate tensions.

Watkins told Hasina that according to their calculations almost 126,000 people have fled violence in Myanmar across the border into Bangladesh until Wednesday. They must not be turned back or deported.

Following Ankara, Tehran has called to end massacre of Muslim population in Myanmar's Arakan state.

In a phone call with Erogdan this week, Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi said there has been "a huge iceberg of misinformation" about the violence in her country's Rakhine state, according to a post on her Facebook page.

Amid Prime Minister Modi's two-day visit to Myanmar, Union minister of state for home affairs Kiren Rijiju asserted Rohingyas are illegal immigrants living in India. This time, the military, initially responding to a series of attacks by a Rohingya armed group, appears to be in charge of operations.

"Buddhists are not even supposed to kill an ant, but the way they are killing the Rohingya people is a heinous crime against humanity".
