ICRC chief: 'Long way to go' until Rohingya refugees can return to Myanmar

Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), spoke to FRANCE 24 from Geneva following a visit to Myanmar and Bangladesh. Maurer described the situation in Myanmar’s Rakhine state as "highly fragile". Despite what he called the political willingness of Aung San Suu Kyi's civilian government to improve the situation, Maurer predicted "a long way to go" to create the conditions that would allow Rohingya to return from neighbouring Bangladesh.
