First camp for Rohingya refugees returning to Burma will open next week

According to the agreement, which was finalised in Myanmar's capital Naypyidaw this week, a two-year deadline has been set for the repatriation of the Rohingya.

Ali briefed Swaraj about the deal, the statement said.

"Our involvement in the process and our full access to areas of return in Myanmar can help to build confidence for all concerned, including the refugees", said Vivian Tan, UNHCR's senior regional communication officer.

"To ensure that the refugees are heard and their protection guaranteed in Bangladesh and on return in Myanmar, we are willing to be part of these discussions", the UNHCR said. "Both the ministers discussed the modalities and physical arrangements for early repatriation of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar", the statement added.

Amazon announced Thursday that it has narrowed its search to 20 finalists out of more than 200 submissions. Amazon's announcement Thursday effectively says no thanks to some of the longer-shot proposals.

Buddhists are the majority in the western state of Rakhine, which is also home to minority Rohingya Muslims.

They placed 12 specific demands that include involvement of the United Nations refugee agency in the repatriation process, consulting refugee representatives, allowing refugees to identify themselves as Rohingya, and rehabilitating them in their original homes and properties with full compensation under United Nations supervision with peace-keeping force.

Speaking to SkyNews, Twigg said: "We need massive reassurances before there can be any suggestion of refugees returning and any return must be genuinely voluntary".

The all-party worldwide development select committee also urged British ministers to "reflect on why so much evidence of discrimination, marginalisation, and abuse of the Rohingya people in Myanmar was seemingly ignored for so long, rather than translated into effective action by the global community".

In addition, they have also agreed to field a single women's ice hockey team made up of players from both countries. It would be the first time athletes from both Koreas have competed together in the same team at an Olympic Games.

The United Nations estimates that more than 650,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh since August of a year ago to avoid violence and the military crackdown in Rakhine.

Since the November agreement, Myanmar's civilian government led by Aung San Suu Kyi has pledged to take measures to halt the outflow of Rohingya to Bangladesh and restore normalcy in the Rakhine region.

State-run media in Myanmar reported on Monday that a camp is being prepared that can accommodate about 30,000 people in 625 buildings, and that at least 100 buildings will be completed by the end of the month.

"These shocking killings are yet another example of Myanmar security forces' contempt for human life", Gomez said.

But it was not immediately clear how or why Moscow would heed Washington's oft-repeated demands. That's highly unlikely, as the safe zones were negotiated largely by Russia, Turkey, and Iran.
