Rohingya refugees


Japan’s government has announced a grant of $3 million to Myanmar to
help repatriate the Rohingya Muslims who have fled violence in troubled
Rakhine state. 

Japan’s Foreign Minister Taro Kono made the offer on behalf of his country’s government in Myanmar on Friday.
Kono urged Myanmar’s civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi to guarantee
the safe and voluntary return of Rohingya who have fled violence in
troubled Rakhine state.
The foreign minister’s three-day visit to Myanmar
includes traveling to northern Rakhine, from where more than 650,000
Rohingya fled to neighbouring Bangladesh to escape the military’s brutal
Humanitarian groups and media have been strictly prohibited from traveling to the affected areas.
Myanmar and Bangladesh signed an agreement on the repatriation of
Rohingya refugees on Nov. 23, and Myanmar said it would start the
process by Jan. 23.
The exact number of the returnees is still unknown. (Fox News)
