Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon:
We regularly raise the status of Rohingya refugees with the Government of Malaysia and regional partners. The UK is a leading donor to the Rohingya response in Bangladesh, providing £345 million total humanitarian support towards the crisis since 2017. We have provided over £25 million for the Rohingya and other Muslim minorities in Rakhine since 2017. This includes direct funding to the refugee camp at Cox’s Bazar and to UNHCR, which works with the Malaysian Government on refugee issues. The UK is grateful for Malaysia’s support for the first UN Security Council Resolution on the situation in Myanmar.
