The Japanese Government has announced a grant of $3 million to Myanmar to help repatriate the Rohingya refugees Muslims who fled violence in troubled Rakhine state back to their homeland.

Foreign Minister of Japan, Taro Kono made the offer on behalf of his country’s government in Myanmar on Friday.

He urged Myanmar’s civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi to guarantee the safe and voluntary return of Rohingya who have fled violence in troubled Rakhine state.

Taro Kono’s three-day visit to Myanmar includes traveling to northern Rakhine, from where more than 650,000 Rohingya fled to neighbouring Bangladesh to escape the military’s brutal crackdown.

Humanitarian groups and media have been strictly prohibited from traveling to the affected areas.

Myanmar and Bangladesh signed an agreement on the repatriation of Rohingya refugees on Nov. 23, and Myanmar said it would start the process by Jan. 23.
