Sofian Khan: After his visit to the northern Rakhine state of Myanmar, the head of the International Committee of Red Cross, Peter Maurer, said that Myanmar is yet not ready yet for the repatriation of hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas who have fled a military crackdown.
Before this, the country in its statement said that they are ready to take back the refugees and has set up two reception centers and what it says is a temporary camp near the border in Rakhine to receive the first arrivals.
But according to the Red Cross President, he did not witness anything during his visit that can convince himself that returns should start any time soon.“I think there is still a lot of work to do till large scale repatriation is a realistic possibility,” Maurer said.“Much more has to happen in terms of reception structure, preparations, also preparation of the communities to receive again those who came from Myanmar.”
