By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

The Rohingya problem which was a local  bilateral issue between Myanmar and Bangladesh and had then become a regional issue with the Rohingya refugees spreading out of Bangladesh. 

It is now getting into international dimensions and one cannot but agree with the statement of A.M.A Muhith, the Finance Minister of Bangladesh that the Rohingya repatriation back to Myanmar will never succeed!

Myanmar - the State of the Peace Process - Not Very Encouraging

Myanmar-Is the Peace Process in Crisis?

Paper No. 6323                                    Dated 22-Nov-2017

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

Paper No. 6321                                  Dated 16-Nov-2017

He was wise enough to point out that by imposing sanctions alone the crisis cannot be expected to be considered to be over.
