Then the Chines delegation left to visit the Rohingyas stranded in no man’s land between the border of Bangladesh and Burma. The delegation talked with the Rohingyas around 1 pm for half an hour, when delegation asked about repatriation the Rohingya said they will return home, on condition of being granted citizenship.
