Bangladesh and Myanmar locks at the end of last year an agreement on the return of the refugees. It was agreed that the repatriation in January would start and two years. Myanmar wants for the returnees to new villages built near their original houses, which the army have been destroyed.

The agreement garnered criticism from human rights organisations and the UN, which found that the refugee voluntary return. Also under the Rohingya, the agreement is controversial, because repatriated refugees have no citizenship at all, but just a photo id.
