Under international pressure Myanmar to send envoys to Rohingya camps

Cox Bazar, July 02 (BAN/ AD): On Monday Myanmar’s UN ambassador has said that high level delegation will visit camps in Bangladesh to explain how thousands of Rohingya Muslims can return home. As international pressure is mounting on Myanmar it is forced to grant them citizenship rights.

Due to violence against them Rohingya muslim’s from Rakhine state in Myanmar had fled fearing their lives and are living in camps in Cox’s Bazar. Many refugees have been traumatized, providing accounts of rape, mass killings and razing of villages.

“dispatch a high level delegation to Cox’s Bazar very soon, by the end of July, to explain to the displaced people the arrangements made for the repatriation and resettlement” said Myanmar’s Ambassador Hau Do Suan. He also said they have received request from some 30,000 Rohingya’s of whom 13,200 are verified and “can return to Rakhine anytime”.

International community is pressurizing Myanmar to grant Rohingya’s citizenship rights.

UN envoy to Myanmar Christine Schraner-Burgener says “The only viable solution for the refugees is the safe, voluntary and dignified repatriation to Myanmar.”
