Allow Rohingya’s safe return, UN chief tells Myanmar

THE United Nations chief today urged Myanmar to ensure the “safe” return of Rohingya refugees driven out by army operations, a plea made in front of Aung San Suu Kyi more than two years since her country cracked down on the Muslim minority.

Speaking at a summit of Asean leaders in Bangkok – with Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s de facto leader, in the room – Antonio Guterres said he remains “deeply concerned” about the plight of the Rohingya.
