Myanmar State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi has reiterated the government's readiness to receive back displaced persons fleeing Rakhine conflict to Bangladesh after verification, calling for cooperation with the Bangladesh side to expedite the repatriation process, according to the foreign ministry Tuesday.

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday urged the UN Security Council to press Myanmar to take back hundreds of thousands of its Rohingya nationals even as she called on India along with Russia, China and Japan to play a stronger role in resolving the refugee crisis. UNSC President Gustavo Adolfo Meza Cuadra Velasqez led his team at the meeting. "We're trying to tell the story of what's going on there and it's been a hidden genocide for decades".

The U.N. refugee agency and Bangladesh recently finalized a memorandum of understanding that said the repatriation process must be "safe, voluntary and dignified, in line with global standards".

The delegation also had comprehensive discussions with Myanmar delegation, led by U Kyaw Tint Swe, Minister at the Office of the State Counselor.

The council adopted a formal statement in November - a move that requires consensus by the 15-member body - that asked Myanmar to ensure no "further excessive use of military force" and to allow "freedom of movement, equal access to basic services, and equal access to full citizenship for all". "This is the reality that must be changed if refugees are to be reasonably expected to return".

"The situation can not remain without a solution and the message that we are conveying to Myanmar, to refugees themselves, to the rest of the world, (is) that we are determined to find a solution to this crisis", al-Otaibi said after the delegation wrapped up its three-day visit.
