The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres is now on a two day visit to Bangladesh. He said on Monday that he would try and seek a long time policy from the government of Bangladesh about the future of twenty seven thousand Rohingya Muslim Refugees from Burma.
Guterres is scheduled to visit Kutupalong, in the Cox's Bazar district, some 400 km (250 miles) southeast of the capital Dhaka and adjacent to the border with Burma. Bangladesh officially shelters about 27,000 Burmese Muslims, known as Rohingyas, in two increasingly dilapidated border camps -- at Kutupalong and Nayapara.
They are remnants of around 250,000 Rohingyas who fled to the Cox's Bazar region in early 1992, alleging persecution by the military in Burma’s western Rakhaine state, which borders Bangladesh.
