Rohingya group urges Bangladesh, Myanmar to reconsider repatriation deal


DHAKA Jan. 23 (TNS): Rohingya advocacy group has urged Bangladesh and Myanmar to reconsider repatriation deal and ensured safety and citizenship of the refugees.

According to Chairman of the European Rohingya Council Hla Kyaq, the repatriation deal is a nightmare for all Rohingya genocide survivors who fled to Bangladesh.

He said Rohingya refugees currently taking shelter in Bangladesh should never be returned to the killing fields before their safety, security and citizenship are guaranteed.
