Rohingyas to be repatriated as per 2017 deal: Myanmar minister writes to FM Momen

Myanmar is committed to begin the repatriation of Rohingyas as per the bilateral agreement signed with Bangladesh in 2017, said Myanmar's International Cooperation Affairs Minister Kyaw Tin in a recent letter to Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen.

Kyaw hoped to begin the repatriation of Rohingyas to Myanmar soon.

A tripartite talk between Bangladesh, Myanmar and China regarding the Rohingya repatriation was held on January 19.

Bangladesh and Myanmar signed the repatriation deal on November 23, 2017.

The Myanmar minister in his letter mentioned that his country took back Rohingyas in 1978 and 1992 through mutual discussion.

Bangladesh is trying in multiple ways - bilaterally, multilaterally, tri-laterally, and through the judicial system – to find a lasting solution to the Rohingya crisis.

The repatriation attempts failed twice in November 2018 and August 2019 - clearly amid Rohingyas' "lack of trust" in the Myanmar government and things would have been different had they returned.
