UNHCR Resident Representative in Myanmar Ms Noriko Takagi calls on Union Minister U Myint Kyaing yesterday.

Union Minister for Immigration and Population U Myint Kyaing received United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Resident Representative to Myanmar Ms Noriko Takagi in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
The meeting was attended by the Union minister, Deputy Minister U Htay Hlaing and officials. The ministry and UNHCR have been working together for the re-acceptance of displaced persons from Rakhine State for many years. Currently, the ministry and UNDP-UNHCR signed a tripartite Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), and the MoU needs to be extended in order to continue cooperation. Due to broadcasts and statements by some foreign organizations and some foreign media without knowing the actual situation on the ground, there were hindrances and delays. The Government has been making consistent efforts for the success of the repatriation of people who left their homes in Rakhine State. In addition to the resettlement of displaced persons, UNHCR will also provide assistance to areas affected by the recent cyclone.
The ministry and UNHCR cordially and frankly discussed and exchanged views regarding the possibility of finding solutions. — MNA/TS
