‘Difficult to say when situation to be conducive for Rohingya repatriation’

UNCHR deputy high commissioner says

UNHCR Deputy High Commissioner Kelly T. Clements today said it is difficult to say exactly when the environment will be conducive for Rohingya repatriation.

Kelly T. Clements said this while addressing a press conference at a hotel in Dhaka on the outcome of her recent visit in Cox’s Bazar.

“It is extremely difficult to say exactly when the environment will be conducive for Rohingya repatriation,” the UNHCR Deputy High Commissioner said responding to a query.

She also said UNHCR is working in Myanmar’s Rakhine state to help Myanmar create a conducive environment. It’s access to Rakhine has increased in the recent months but greater access is required, she also said.

“We are working on a whole community approach. Looking at the basic issues like primary healthcare and education,” she added.
