British Foreign Secretary Wants UN to Supervise Return of Burmese Refugees
Tuesday, 13 February 2018 10:10 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson says the United Nations must supervise the return of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar because many are scared to come home on their own.

Johnson spoke to reporters Sunday after his meeting with Aung San Suu Kyi, de facto leader of the country formerly known as Burma

"I saw real apprehension both in camps in Bangladesh and amongst the remaining villagers," Johnson said.

"The Burmese authorities need to work very hard with international agencies to overcome the real alarm that people feel about coming back to Burma."

A military crackdown on Myanmar's Rohingya Muslim minority sent hundreds of thousands fleeing to refugee camps in neighboring Bangladesh. Those who stayed behind in their destroyed villages still fear for their lives.
