The ministry said security forces have been instructed to adhere strictly to the code of conduct in carrying out security operations and all other acts that impair the stability and harmony in the area.
“The security forces have been instructed to exercise all due restraint, and to take full measures to avoid collateral damage and the harming of innocent civilians in the course of carrying out their legitimate duty to restore stability,” the Foreign Affairs Ministry said in a statement on Monday.
According to the statement, humanitarian aid will be provided to all displaced people without discrimination, and the government welcomes aid offers from other ASEAN members and other countries.
The terrorist group ARSA has attacked at least 40 police posts and checkpoints and one military base in three townships of northern Rakhine since August 25.
There have also been 60 reported clashes between the terrorist group and government security forces since that date and dozens of people have been killed in the fighting, including 11 members of the security forces. The total reported death toll has since climbed to over 300, including many alleged terrorists.
Human Rights Watch said on September 8, that Muslim people are fleeing as Myanmar security forces launched systematic killings, shelling, and arson in their villages.
The UN estimates that at least 270,000 Muslim people from Rakhine have arrived in Bangladesh since the fighting began between the ARSA terrorist group and government security forces two weeks ago.
