374 Rohingya verified for repatriation
YANGON: Myanmar has been able to verify only 374 Rohingya refugees for possible repatriation from
Bangladesh, officials said yesterday, blaming their neighbour for not providing the correct information about the refugees. Myint Thu, permanent secretary at Myanmar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said: “Of 8,032 refugees, we verified 374. They will be the first batch. They can come back when it’s convenient for them.” It was unclear whether the 374 people had agreed to return to Myanmar.
