Myanmar urges Bangladesh to extradite 1300 'rebel' Rohingyas

Myanmar urges Bangladesh to extradite 1300 'rebel' Rohingyas

Aye Maung is a parliament representative elected from Ann township constituency of Rakhine state.

Rakhine is also home to minority Rohingya Muslims, who have long faced persecution that has seen about 650,000 people driven away from their homes into Bangladesh since August. The US expressed similar concerns, stressing that the ability for the people to safely and voluntarily return is what is most important.

Rohingya communities from across the globe have demanded that the Rohingya refugees sheltering in Bangladesh be guaranteed security of life and property and peaceful coexistence as equals with all other people in Myanmar before they are repatriated. "They don't want that, we don't want that, the nations don't necessarily want that either".

"The required conditions for the safe return of the Rohingya must include ... access to fundamental human rights", it said.




Nauert said religious freedom, which is taken for granted in the United States is under serious attack throughout the world. "Across South Asia, members of religious minorities experience societal discrimination and violence which is exacerbated by laws and policies that punish speech, restrict religious conversions, or ban certain beliefs", she said, adding that protecting and promoting religious freedom is a priority of this Trump administration.

A spokesperson from the un high commission for refugees said Myanmar also needed to address the underlying causes of the crisis and that refugees should only return when they feel it is safe for them. Our experiences on the ground tell us that it is unlikely that Rohingya refugees will leave camps in Bangladesh if they face uncertainty about whether they or their families will be subjected to violence, abuse, and rape back in Myanmar.

"No terrorist outfit is allowed to operate from Bangladesh and jeopardise the security interest of our neighbours, including India", Ali said while addressing the Raisina Dialogue. "The UNHCR was not involved directly in the management of the agreement even if they were consulted".

United States Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the UN refugee agency United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was consulted but it's very important the agency is fully involved to guarantee the repatriation adheres to global standards.
