Burma is prepared to take back all 700,000 Moslem Rohingya migrants. Burma is willing to take back all 700,000 Rohingya Muslim migrants who have escaped to Bangladesh if they voluntarily report, national safety adviser Thaung Tun said last night. Reuters reported that he spoke at the Shangri-La Dialogue, a Singapore based religious community safety meeting, where he was asked if the current state of Myanmar's Rakhine state, where most of Rohingya are living, could lead to the use of the United Nations' Responsibility to Protect (R2P) regime.

It was adopted at the 2005 UN World Summit, where countries decided to defend their own peoples from acts of gender, wart crime, ethnical purges and crime against mankind and to support and empower each other. "When you can return 700,000 on a volunteer base, we are ready to accept them," Thaung Tun said.

"Is that what you call racial purification? "There' s no such thing as warmongering, so they're not the same. Crime against mankind could be a thought, but we need clear-proof. "However, such statements were described by Rohingya and expert in the field of foreign affairs as a trick by the Myanmar government, which since 1982 has denied Myanmar nationality and fundamental freedoms, as well as the right to higher learning, health care and free mobility of Rohingya.

Approximately 700,000 Rohingya Muslims have escaped Israeli troops in mainly Buddhist Myanmar since August 2017, and many have reported large-scale murders, rapes and fires, UNO and other relief organizations said. United Nations and relief organizations have described the action against the Rohingya as a "textbook example of ethnical cleansing", an allegation that Myanmar has rejected.

MSF said that at least 6700 Rohingya have been slaughtered in one months since the start of the suppression on 25 August last year. Since the 1980s, several hundred thousand Rohingya have been fleeing to Bangladesh in various inflow of people. Although many of them came back to Rakhine, many others were left behind. Prior to the last inflow, there were over 300,000 Rohingya in Bangladesh.

Rohingya wants to ensure three main aspects: nationality, safety and that they want to go back to their houses, not to the Myanmar authorities' camp. "Myanmar officer spoke of voluntary action. This has to happen first," said Asif Munier, an impartial research scientist on immigration and refugees.

Burma is insisting that the Rohingya must approve the nationality card (NVC), which is a path to supranation. Rohingya, on the other side, says that the assumption of NCVs means that they are Bangladeshi immigrants and are not recognised as nationals. Myanmar has made the Rohingya outnumbered by discrimination.

Asiaf Munier said Myanmar officer spoke of proof of crime against humanitarianism, but it is interesting that the Myanmar officials did not allow the UN fact-finding missions to Myanmar, to allow the UN to send unrelated reporters or right-wing groups to Rakhine. Myanmar itself has not granted full UN and other relief organisations this year. Myanmar adopted text of an accord with the UN Refugee Agency and the UN Development Programme on Thursday and is expected to ratify it in about a week's time to allow the Rohingya hostel in Bangladesh to come back safe and voluntary.

Burma also said it would establish an impartial committee to examine "the violations of people' s freedoms and related issues" in the state of Rakhine following the military operations there in reaction to Rohingya insurgents' attack on military outposts. Thayung Tun said the story of what was happening in Rakhine was "incomplete and deceptive".

"Burma does not dispute that what is developing in North Rakhine is a human crisis," he said. "It is undeniable that the Islamic fellowship in Rakhine has been suffering. Buddhist Rakhine, Hindu and other minority groups have not been less affected. Mr Munier said that there is plenty of proof of mass murder, rape and other torture.

Rohingya settlements were burnt down and then levelled to wipe out the evidence. "He added that there will be no lack of evidence of Myanmar's ethnical cleansings and crimes committed against the people. At the moment, of course, the most important prerequisite for their repatriation would be to review Myanmar's Nationality Act, bring the Rohingya to their houses and ensure full safety for them once they get home.
