The latest string of violence in Myanmar's northwestern Rakhine state began on August 25 when Rohingya insurgents reportedly attacked various police posts and an army base.

Simon Henshaw, acting assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration, thanked the Bangladeshi government and people for their "warm response and their strong response" in supporting the Rohingya who have come across the border.

Bangladeshi men help Rohingya refugees to disembark from a boat on the Bangladeshi shoreline of the Naf river after crossing the border from Myanmar in Teknaf.

Last month Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said the government had prepared measures to accommodate Muslims fleeing violence from Myanmar and will help them on their way when they are ready.

The refugees have claimed the Myanmar security forces are shooting at civilians, setting fire to their homes and raping Rohingya women.

Both countries also agreed to form a joint working group to solve the Rohingya crisis during the meeting that lasted for over an hour.

Rohingya refugees queue for aid in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, October 1, 2017.

The desperate conditions in the overcrowded camps have sparked concerns that epidemics, including cholera, could spread.

Almost half a million Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh due to violence in the Rakhine state that has claimed lives of at least more than 100 people and displaced several others.

Myanmar has come under global criticism for barring aid groups, journalists and other outsiders from independently traveling to the region to see the situation there.

Three groups of diplomats were taken to three different areas on Monday, said Ye Htut, district administrator of Maungdaw in Rakhine.
