US to discuss Rohingya Resettlement

     Julieta Valls Noyes, US Assistant Secretary of the US Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, arrives in Bangladesh to discuss a pilot scheme for a resettlement of a small group of Rohingya population to the US as well as humanitarian assistance for the Rohingya.
During her five-day visit, Noyes is set to hold meetings with some high-level Bangladeshi officials and visit Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar and Bhashanchar.
Earlier, the US proposed names of more than 50 Rohingya people for resettlement in the US, which may be discussed during the meetings, the Daily Star reported.
Al-Azhar Observatory for Combating Extremism (AOCE) sees this move as a way to direct more global attention to the most persecuted refugee community in the world, emphasizing meanwhile that efforts are still needed to repatriate the Rohingya after the Burmese security forces drove them out of their homeland.
