ASEAN Foreign Ministers to Discuss Rohingya Humanitarian Crisis

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Foreign Ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will meet each other to discuss the Rohingya humanitarian crisis.

“A meeting will be held on the sidelines of a session of the UN general assembly,” Indonesia’s Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said in Jakarta on September 11. The UN general assembly session is scheduled for September 23 in New York, the United States.

At the meeting, foreign ministers will talk about the latest situation in Myanmar. They will also discuss how to contribute particularly in the distribution of humanitarian aid to the affected residents. “Humanitarian aid will be the main issue to be discussed in the meeting,” she said.

FM Retno said that relief efforts for residents of Rakhine State are currently hampered by aid modalities that have not been agreed by the Myanmar government, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and nations that offered relief items, including Indonesia. She had earlier contacted Myanmar national security adviser U Thaung Tun to accelerate modalities administration process to immediately open access to people in need of aid.

In addition, according to Retno, Rohingya relief scheme through ASEAN Humanitarian Assistance Centre (AHA Centre) will be initiated even though it would take some time to complete. The procedure for assistance through AHA Centre requires a proposal from disaster agency of the respective donor country and approval of the recipient.
