No deal yet for Myanmar to take back Rohingya refugees

Meeting by ministers yields little concrete results

Myanmar Home Minister Kyaw Swe and Bangladeshi counterpart Asaduzzaman Khan met in Myanmar's capital, Naypyitaw.

COX'S BAZAR, Bangladesh -- Negotiations appear to have stalled on repatriating the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who have fled from Myanmar to Bangladesh, with the two countries making little headway Tuesday in their second ministerial meeting.

Bangladeshi Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan spoke with counterpart Kyaw Swe in Myanmar's capital of Naypyitaw, where the two officials agreed on further cooperation in border security but made no progress on repatriation. The first ministerial meeting was held in Bangladesh earlier this month.
