(World Vision) – Children and their families must not be forced to return under any repatriation deal without guarantees of their safety. As the UK’s ambassador to the United Nations visits Myanmar’s Rakhine state today, Britain must use its influence to call the Burmese government to account on the crisis that has forced 700,000 refugees to flee into Bangladesh. Karen Pierce, part of an unprecedented UN delegation, is expected to use this week’s visit to raise the issue of repatriation. This is an opportune moment for Britain to champion human rights, and ensure a safe future for almost half a million refugee children and their families.
