We welcome the release of the comprehensive report of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State and take note of its emphasis on issues related to identity and citizenship, particularly its call for freedom of movement for all people, as well as the need to address the root causes of violence and reduce inter-communal tensions. 

We look forward to reviewing the report's recommendations further.

In the meantime, we would like to acknowledge again the significance of the Government’s establishment of this Commission and the importance of its mandate to analyze the situation of all communities in Rakhine State and draft recommendations toward conflict prevention, reconciliation, institution building and long-term development, and humanitarian services.

The UN stands ready to support the Government’s implementation of the recommendations for the betterment of all communities in Rakhine State.
