BANGLADESH: Officials said Bangladesh will work with the United Nations refugee agency to determine if more than 3,000 Rohingya refugees will accept Myanmar’s offer to return home.

More than 730,000 Rohingya fled Rakhine state for camps in Bangladesh after a military-led offensive in August 2017-  joining 200,000 already there – but virtually none has volunteered to return despite the countries signing a repatriation deal last year.

“It will be a joint exercise led by UNHCR,” Abul Kalam, Bangladesh’s refugee relief and repatriation commissioner, told Reuters news agency on Monday.
