Myanmar: Flying Rohingya may return

geneva - A return of Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh has the highest priority for Myanmar. Both countries agreed Monday to set up a working group to return more than half a million refugees.

'The repatriation process can start any time for those who wish to return to Myanmar,' said a responsible minister from Myanmar to the UNHCR, UN Refugee Organization. 'Those who are recognized as refugees are accepted without difficulty and their security and dignity are ensured. '

Islamic Rohingya is suppressed in predominantly Buddhist Myanmar and has been extinguished after military violence to neighboring Bangladesh. That's going to happen. The United Nations earlier spoke of ethnic cleansing.

The status of the population in Myanmar remains unclear for now. Until now, they can not become citizens and can be considered illegal immigrants.
