Deputy Commissioner of Cox`s Bazar Kamal Hossain said that the UN delegation reached the Rohingya camp at the zero-point of the Kunarpara border 9 am.
He said that after visiting the camp, they will go to Kutupalong refugee camp in Ukhia of Cox`s Bazar and talk to Rohingya and listen to their plight.

Earlier, a 40-member delegation, including 15 members of the United Nations Security Council, arrived in Cox`s Bazar from Iraq on a Kuwait Airways flight on Saturday afternoon for a two-day visit to the situation in Rohingya. They are headed by Peruvian Gustavo Meza-Chuadra, who is the President of UN Security Council in the current (April) month.
The delegation met with representatives of UN organizations, Rohingya Refugee Releases Commissioner and Foreign Ministry officials at the hotel Royal Royal University on Saturday night.

After the resumption of new Rohingyas from Myanmar`s Rakhine in August last year, the first UN Security Council representative visited Rohingya camps in Cox`s Bazar.

In August last year, the Myanmar army launched an operation against Muslim Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine State. In the face of the campaign, more than 7 lakh Rohingyas fled to Bangladesh to save lives.
The United Nations, European Union, and Western world`s complaints, during the operation, Myanmar`s army violated human rights by `ethnic cleansing`, `genocide` and `systematic`. Although Myanmar denied the allegations since the beginning. In the meantime, the government of Bangladesh has signed a deal with Myanmar in the rehabilitation of Rohingya refugees.
After the inspection of the Rohingya camp, they will leave for Dhaka on Sunday from Cox`s Bazar, said Deputy Commissioner. Kamal Hossain said.
