Rohingyas are illegal immigrants not refugees: Rajnath Singh

"This is of great concern because polio has been totally eradicated in Bangladesh and tuberculosis is very much under control", Haque said.

More than 420,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since August 25 when Rohingya insurgent attacks on security forces prompted a military crackdown and reprisals by majority Buddhists.

The Congress party on Thursday said that Myanmar State Councillor Aung San Suu Kyi is playing second fiddle to the nation's army which has been accused of levelling atrocities on the Rohingyas.

Around 400 people, mostly insurgents, have been killed so far in the fighting.

The aid will also be available for internally displaced people in Myanmar's Rakhine state and bring the total US aid for those impacted by the crisis to 95 million dollars this year.

Around 300 men started throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at officers protecting a truck delivering supplies from the International Committee of the Red Cross to a jetty in the Rakhine state capital, Sittwe, said police officer Phyo Wai Kyaw.

"We expect the worldwide community, like Australia, America, definitely to pursue this Myanmar Government, to take back their citizens", he said.

"In this situation deporting the Rohingya children and their mothers staying in different shelter- homes and correctional homes of West Bengal means to throw them into the jaws of death", it added.

ICRC spokeswoman Graziella Leite Piccoli confirmed the incident.

"In light of the ongoing violence in Burma's Rakhine state, the growing humanitarian crisis it has caused, and our deep concern about the human rights abuses that are taking place, we have made a decision to suspend the educational courses provided to the Burmese military until there is an acceptable resolution to the current situation". "President Trump and I also call on this security council and the United Nations to take strong and swift action to bring this crisis to an end".

"The Rohingyas are not refugees".

In her Tuesday's address, the de-facto leader condemned human rights abuses but did not blame the army or address allegations of ethnic cleansing.

She said there had been no acts of violence or village clearances since 5 September, a claim which has been widely disputed.

The remarks by Mr Wang to Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi on the sidelines of a United Nations meeting in NY on Tuesday appeared to show some sympathy for the difficulties Myanmar faces quelling the insurgency.

"The security forces have been instructed to adhere strictly to the Code of Conduct in carrying out security operations, to exercise all due restraint, and to take full measures to avoid collateral damage and the harming of innocent civilians".

Media captionWatch: Who are the Rohingya? He said their Vice-Minister would visit Myanmar soon.

But those who have fled accuse troops and Buddhist mobs of burning their villages and attacking and killing civilians in what they say is a move to drive them out.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday lamented the "terrible savagery" of Myanmar's security forces. "We are committed to the restoration of peace and stability and rule of law throughout the state", Suu Kyi said.
