GENEVA: Myanmar told the United Nations on Tuesday that it was finalising terms for a joint working group with Bangladesh that will launch the process of safe and voluntary return of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees within about two months.

Htin Lynn, Myanmar`s ambassador to the UN in Geneva, told a special session of the Human Rights Council that his government was ready to work with all international partners to ensure the "voluntary, safe, dignified and sustainable repatriation" and resettlement of the displaced - whom he did not refer to as Rohingya.
