The visiting United Nations officials are: Claudia Angela Banz of Switzerland, Nesrin Said Amin Hannoun of Jordan, Ahmed Mohamed Abdel Wahab RHB Feshawl of Egypt, Nabi ShafikAwad of the USA, Miranda Camillelucy Moses of Trinidad and Tobago, Igro Anson Gill of Barbados, Jung Hawan Lee of the USA, David Michael Kinna of the UK, Luis Amadeo Solari Antonia of Peru, and Kuwait counsellor S SS Alfassam Talal.

"The situation can not remain without a solution and the message that we are conveying to Myanmar, to refugees themselves, to the rest of the world, (is) that we are determined to find a solution to this crisis", al-Otaibi said.

Further, the delegates were debriefed by the local administration of Border Guard Bangladesh about the on-going Bangladesh crises. Bangladesh urges the global community to help bring to and to the crisis. The Council, however, failed to adopt an enforceable resolution due to opposition by Myanmar's ally China.

"Because I don't think there will be a sanction by the council anytime soon". "It needs time. Hopefully the agreements will be implemented", he said.

"Hopefully, the situation won't deteriorate".

"It's very necessary to come and see everything at place here in Bangladesh and Myanmar".

The deputy USA ambassador to the UN, Kelley Eckels Currie, described the visit as "quite overwhelming". There won't be an easy solution to this. The Muslim population in Rakhine has either been decimated or fled to Bangladesh. "It has that influence", Alam said.

'We're living in a world without adult supervision at the moment, ' says Canada's Special Envoy to Myanmar.

He said the UNSC team is touched by the stories of Rohingyas and realised that the root cause of Rohingya crisis lies in Myanmar. We want to see a solution for that.

Bangladesh wants them to act "decisively and immediately" to end the sufferings of the Rohingyas.

According to Jerusalem Post, Pompeo said, "We believe that the Israelis and Palestinians need to have political engagement". Crown Prince Mohammad was unequivocal in what he thinks of Palestinian leaders continually rejecting peace offerings.

"We hope the Security Council will carry out solo investigations of our difficulties and how our demands are and to probe and settle our difficulties", said Abdul Rahim, one of the participants in the rally at the Kutupalong camp in Bangladesh's Ukhia's district.

Thousands of refugees had gathered amid scorching heat at the camp to welcome the delegation. "Myanmar must cooperate so Rohingya can return in a safe, dignified and sustainable way".

"They have killed my family members, they tortured us, they will kill us again", said one of the refugees, 29-year-old Mohammed Tayab, standing in front of a tent where he was waiting to meet the United Nations team.

During their interaction at different levels, the delegation members assured all of taking effective steps to help resolve the Rohingya crisis.

The delegation will also visit Burma after concluding its three-day visit to Bangladesh on Monday. Burma denies the accusations of ethnic cleansing.

Professor Riaz said, "Hopefully, the cycle of inaction will be broken".

Earlier on April 16, the Myanmar government said in a Facebook post that a family of five had returned to the country from the border area between Bangladesh and Myanmar.

The UNSC team is scheduled to leave Cox's Bazar for Dhaka on Sunday afternoon.

The envoys met Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday morning before leaving for Myanmar, where they will hold talks with de facto civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
