The co-hosts will call on the international community to provide much-needed funding to assist Rohingya refugees, host communities, and internally displaced people in Myanmar
The US, the UK, the EU, and the UN refugee agency will bring the international community together on 22 October to address the Rohingya crisis.
There is a significant funding gap in the international response to the crisis this year, with contributions to date covering less than half of $1 billion in aid sought by the UN.
Also, the Covid-19 pandemic made the funding gap worse.
So the co-hosts will call on countries to step up support for the Rohingyas, host communities, and internally displaced people in Myanmar.
They want to raise urgently needed funds to help displaced Rohingya living both in and outside of their native Myanmar.
The funds are also expected to support critical services in host communities throughout South and Southeast Asia, read press releases of the British High Commission Dhaka and European Union issued on Thursday.
The conference will allow the co-hosts to reiterate that any sustainable solution to this crisis must include the voluntary, safe, dignified and sustainable return of Rohingya refugees and other displaced people to their homes or a place of their choosing, the statements said.
US Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun said, "The United States is proud to stand with the UK, the EU, and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees as partners in leading this call to sustain the international crisis response to assist Rohingya refugees and other displaced people, as well as strengthen investment in affected host communities."
The Rohingya people faced horrific brutality and had been forced to flee their homes in the worst circumstances imaginable, British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said.
"We have taken action against the architects of this systemic violence, including through sanctions and will continue to hold those responsible to account," he continued.
UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said, "Solidarity with the Rohingya people means more than just meeting their basic needs. Refugees, like everyone else, have a right to a life of dignity and the chance to build a safe and stable future."
European Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič said, "The international community must strengthen its shared efforts towards reaching a sustainable solution – one that cultivates conditions for voluntary, safe and dignified return of Rohingya refugees."
