Myanmar starts work to repatriate Rohingyas

State counsellor and Myanmar union minister for foreign affairs Aung San Suu Kyi on Wednesday (Oct 25) said her government started work on repatriation of Rohingyas who are living in Bangladesh.

She also said the Myanmar government has started work to implement the recommendations made by the Kofi Annan Commission to bring solution to the Rohingya crisis.

Suu Kyi said it to home minister Asaduzzaman during a meeting held at her office in Myanmar's capital city, local media reports said.

The Home Minister invited Suu Kyi to visit Bangladesh. In reply, Suu Kyi said she will visit Bangladesh at a time convenient to both sides.

Home Ministry sources said the repatriation process will be done as per the Kofi Annan and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's five-point proposal.
