UNHRC adopts resolution on Rohingya issue

Dhaka, Dec 5 (UNB) - The UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday adopted a resolution on the Rohingya issue.

The resolution was passed by 33 votes at the 27th special session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva on the human rights situation of the minority Rohingya Muslim population and other minorities in Rakhine State of Myanmar, said State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam.

Nine countries, including India, refrained from giving vote while three others -- China, Burundi and the Philippines -- voted against the resolution, he said while talking to UNB.

India, however, explained its position.
