  • Bangladesh, Myanmar plan Rohingya repatriation in 2 years

More than 650,000 ethnic Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since August, when Myanmar's military launched a brutal crackdown in Rakhine state after a militant group attacked police posts. The UN and rights groups have urged the Myanmar government to ensure the safe and voluntary return of the Rohingya refugees.

Ali briefed Swaraj about the deal, the statement said.

Rohingyas continue entering Bangladesh due to continuing violence and brutality against them in Rakhine, says the statement that comes a day after Myanmar and Bangladesh signed terms of reference of physical arrangement in Nay Pyi Taw, on January 16.

"That's completely counterproductive", Nauert said while responding to a question on the agreement reached between Bangladesh and Myanmar on the repatriation of the Rohingyas. The clash is feared to hamper projected repatriation of Muslim Rohingya refugees from neighboring Bangladesh.

Myanmar has agreed to accept 1,500 rohingya every week, adding that it aims to return all of them to Myanmar within two years.

The World Food Program (WFP) also highlighted the concerns about food insecurity and undernutrition in Rakhine state in bordering Myanmar - home to a large Rohingya population - especially for the health of women and children.

The all-party worldwide development select committee also urged British ministers to "reflect on why so much evidence of discrimination, marginalisation, and abuse of the Rohingya people in Myanmar was seemingly ignored for so long, rather than translated into effective action by the global community". "Bangladesh authorities also need to proceed with the paperwork and documents for refugees and send it to us fast".

In the November agreement, Myanmar's civilian government led by, pledged to take measures to halt the outflow of Rohingya to Bangladesh and restore normalcy in the region.

Facebook has been struggling with how to handle its distribution of news in an era of fake news and claims of media bias. To do so, he said, Facebook chose to rely on member surveys as the most "objective" way to rank trust in news sources.

"Without investigation, transparency, and accountability for crimes against the Rohingya, any discussion of repatriation is a nonstarter".

State-run media in Myanmar reported Monday the 124-acre Hla Po Khaung camp will accommodate about 30,000 people in 625 buildings and that at least 100 buildings are to be completed by the end of the month.

"These shocking killings are yet another example of Myanmar security forces' contempt for human life", Gomez said. "Why are basic issues like citizenship, freedom of movement and livelihoods not discussed now so refugees can make informed choices?"
