The UNICEF declared on Wednesday that Rohingya children need a political solution to the issue of legal identity and citizenship and in the interim they need to be recognized first and foremost as children, reports Daily Star.At a press briefing in Geneva, Unicef Spokesperson Marixie Mercado said, “The Convention on the Rights of the Child guarantees rights to health, education and opportunities to learn and grow to all children, irrespective of their ethnicity or status or the circumstances in which they find themselves. Ways and means must be found to deliver these rights to Rohingya children in Rakhine State today,” “We have long worked to promote more equitable and inclusive access for all children across Rakhine and Myanmar, and we stand by our principle that a child is a child and every child in need deserves help,” she added.She urged that Rohingya children desperately need education if they are to have any kind of prospects for a better future.
