Myanmar ready to welcome back ‘verified’ refugees, says Suu Kyi


PV International Desk : Myanmar’s de-facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi says the country is ready to welcome back ‘verified’ refugees who have fled Myanmar to Bangladesh.“We are prepared to start the verification process at any time,” Suu Kyi said on Tuesday, in her first address since the start of the latest military crackdown in Rakhine state.

The verification criteria will be based on principles agreed to in 1993.

“As our national security adviser has assured Bangladesh, and which I can confirm now, we are ready to start the verification process at any time and those who have been verified as refugees from this country will be accepted without any problems and with full assurance of their security and their access to humanitarian aid.”
