PV International Desk : The Rohingya people, who have entered Bangladesh after fleeing from the violence in Rakhine State of Myanmar, will not be allowed back in without proof of citizenship, said the National Security Adviser (NSA) of Myanmar U Thaung Tun.
The decision was made in a National Security Advisor (NSA) meeting on Wednesday night (Sep 6), reports the Myanmar Times.
In a press conference after the meeting, advisor U Thaung Tun said, “Citizens must have proof of how many years they have lived in Myanmar. If it is found to be true, they can come back. But it will not be possible if they are not a Myanmar citizen.”
Although a security warning was issued in major cities like Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon, Mandalay and Mawlamyaing, people need not worry, he said.
