Refugee Repatriation From Bangladesh To Start In June

18

Bangladesh officials say they expect to begin a third effort to repatriate hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees to their homes in Myanmar’s Rakhine state in June, VOA reported.
The target date – seen as premature by many Rohingya – emerged from this week’s talks between the two countries under Chinese mediation.
Myanmar’s deputy minister for international cooperation U Hau Do Suan and China’s vice foreign minister Luo Zhaohui represented their respective countries in the 90-minute virtual meeting.
But many Rohingya in the sprawling refugee camps around Cox’s Bazar say they are unwilling to return to Myanmar before a series of long-standing demands are met, the report said.
There are more than one million Rohingya refugees who have fled into Bangladesh from Rakhine over the years — most after the 2017 atrocities by Burmese army.
