Sittway February 6
Rakhine State Chief Minister met with representatives from ASEAN Secretariat and AHA Centre in Sittway yesterday.
During the meeting, the representatives said that the ASEAN-Emergency Response and Assessment Team (ASEAN- ERAT) would make an analysis of the repatriation process in accordance with the agreements between Myanmar and ASEAN. They also discussed about preparing for questionnaire to be used by ASEAN- ERAT team in cooperation with departments and providing management and supports from Myanmar for the observation team.
Rakhine State Chief Minister replied that efforts would be made to cooperate with ASEAN for the repatriation process with genuine motives. The development of the whole Rakhine State is more crucial rather than giving humanitarian aids. If job opportunities could be created, it would be beneficial to the residents in the Rakhine State.
