Myanmar delegation holds repatriation talks with Rohingyas in Bangladesh

The delegation met various groups of Rohingyas including Hindu and Christian groups to convince them to return to Myanmar. It also held discussions with officials on the issue.

The Bangladesh refugee commissioner Mohammad Abul Kalam said the talks were positive but the representatives of the Rohingyas in Bangladesh said that they wanted citizenship, safety and security as preconditions for their return to Rakhine province in Myanmar.

They also wanted to return to their villages and not to camps constructed by the Myanmar government. It is the second time since October last year that Myanmar has sent a delegation to convince Rohingyas to return to Myanmar.

Bangladesh government claims that currently close to 11 lakh Rohingya refugees are staying in various camps set up by it.

Myanmar and Bangladesh signed an agreement in November 2017 for the repatriation of the Rohingyas who fled Rakhine province of Myanmar amid violence and military crackdown but there has not been any progress on the issue since then.
