Based Rohingya support group commends Sri Lanka ministers

Mizoram: Not a single Rohingya entered state says Home Minister Lalzirliana

Kyaw Tint Swe, Union Minister for Office of the State Counsellor, who led a three-member delegation to a meeting in Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, made the proposal Monday to begin the process for repatriation.

More than half a million Rohingya have fled from the region to Bangladesh in just over a month, the largest refugee crisis to hit Asia in decades.

Rohingya migrants in Bangladesh say the fences prevent them from making trips to their homes in Myanmar.

Myanmar has proposed to repatriate the Rohingya people who have entered Bangladesh fleeing the violence in the Rakhine State since August 25.

Sri Lankan police said Sunday they have arrested six people in their hunt for a mob led by Buddhist monks who attacked Rohingya refugees last week.

Suu Kyi, who has been severely criticised for her failure to curb the military crackdown, said last month that Myanmar would take back "verified" refugees.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres acknowledged [statement] Suu Kyi's speech and Myanmar's intention to "implement the recommendations of the advisory committee for Rakhine state".

But no details of the planned repatriation were given by Bangladesh Foreign Minister A.H Mahmood Ali, and there was widespread scepticism over whether any of the more than 800,000 Muslim Rohingya now in Bangladesh would return.

Suu Kyi has no power over security policy under a military-drafted constitution and the public in Myanmar - where Buddhist nationalism has surged over recent years - largely supports the offensive.

Asked if there was any timeframe fixed for forming the joint working group, the minister evaded a direct answer saying "the process has started" but said Bangladesh's Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan would "soon visit Myanmar to discuss the issue".

Bangladesh will nominate its representative to the Joint Working Group Myanmar will give theirs to make it functional, minister said terming it a start of the repatriation of Rohingya.

The documentary, called "I Am Rohingya", is the first to be produce by Contrast VR, Al Jazeera's immersive media studio and tells the story of Jamalida Begum, a Rohingya Muslim, and her two children in the slums of the Kutupalong refugee encampments in Bangladesh. "It is important for the Myanmar security forces to handle the situation with restraint, focusing on the welfare of the civilian population", an Indian High Commission statement quoted the Indian representative as telling the council's 36th session on Friday.
