Rohingya refugees of different faiths, currently living in Bangladesh, expressed their unwillingness to return to Myanmar on Monday unless certain demands are met upon their return. These comments were made after a delegation from Myanmar led by permanent secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Myint Thu, met with Rohingya leaders on Sunday in an effort to reignite repatriation talks, following a rejected offer made last October.
