On December 31, the last day of 2020, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution on human rights violations by Myanmar against Rohingyas and others by a huge margin. The voting record is, 130 countries in favor, 9 against, and 26 countries decided to abstain.

Aside from exposing the world's negative attitude to Myanmar once again, the adopted resolution will not change anything on the ground, meaning the Rohingyas will continue to suffer as they do now. This kind of resolution are non-binding and previous resolutions did not work in the past.

But what more significant is, the voting pattern of China, Russia and Bangladesh's first neighbour India. All these three countries, considered to be important in solving the protracted Rohingya crisis, have not backed the adopted resolution on December 31.
