US urges Myanmar to help implement Annan Commission recommendations

Abrar Hussain: The US has urged the Myanmar government to fulfill its commitment in working with the UNHCR and UNDP to implement the recommendations of the Kofi Annan-led Advisory Commission on Rakhine State, reports NewAge.
Heather Nauert, US Department of State spokesperson said on Thursday, “We welcome the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding by UNHCR, UNDP, and the Myanmar government to support the creation of conditions conducive to  the voluntary, safe, dignified, and sustainable return of Rohingya refugees to Burma, whether to their places of origin or of their choosing.” Nauert said this is a ‘positive step’ and they see this MoU as a confidence-building measure, adding that if effectively implemented, the MoU could allow much-needed humanitarian assistance to reach all the affected communities as well as to assist Myanmar in creating the necessary conditions for voluntary return of refugees and recovery for all communities living in Rakhine State.
