An independent media delegation, including journalists from local and foreign media agencies, arrived in Maungtaw yesterday.
The media delegation was accompanied by Maungtaw District Deputy Commissioner U Ye Htut, who also answered questions from the media on matters regarding readiness for repatriation, resettlement for returnees and works for regional peace and development. In the afternoon, the media delegation visited the Khon-Daing and Myawaddy villages of Mro ethnic nationals, Owe Htane village (Hindu) and Kyein Chaung village (Muslim), where journalists met villagers and freely gathered information, including accommodation being constructed under the UEHRD programme, issuing of NVCs and their living conditions.
In the evening, they also interviewed the Hindu women from Yebawkya Village, who had returned from the neighboring country and escaped from terrorists.
