New Zealand delegate Sabek Germame, a member of the Advisory Panel on the Question of Rohingya women in Bangladesh, explained the vital task of protecting Rohingya women in refugee camps.

'There is a large amount of sexual and gender-based violence towards women by the military and other elements within Myanmar,' he said. 'Women are being taken advantage of because the women exist in a predominantly male culture and cannot do anything about it. Furthermore, Myanmar has not condemned the acts.'

'We believe in empowering women and making it as safe as possible for them to be able to live their lives free from violence,' said UK delegate Theodora Reiter.

'It's becomes a huge international topic that everyone is starting to talk about,' she said. 'It has been increasing more of an atrocity. It is horrific'

South Korean delegate Oliver Krok said it's important to speak about the refugee's as a whole

'South Korea wants the refugees to be in safe hands, protected and no longer suffering,' he said.

Delegate Sabek Germame said all three countries agree.

'We want to give unlimited and unsuspended humanitarian aid for all of the women who are victims of sexual and gender-based violence,' he said.
