On Wednesday, Myanmar Junta Spokesman said Myanmar will accept the return of around 1,000 Rohingya refugees in a pilot repatriation program which will likely begin by mid-April.
“We will receive people back according to both countries’ agreement… About 1,000 people will be in (the) first batch,” Zaw Min Tun told AFP.
“Myanmar side is checking some lists at this moment,” he added.
Very recently, a delegation of 17 officials from Myanmar’s military regime met around 480 refugees in Cox’s Bazar to assess refugees for potential return. The process brokered by China and partly facilitated by the United Nations.
