Thailand and Mynamar will work together to send more than 130,000 Myanmar refugees back to their home country, National Council for Peace and Order Prayuth Chan-ocha says.

Speaking on his weekly Return Happiness to the People TV show yesterday, Gen Prayuth said he discussed the issue with Myanmar Supreme Commander Gen Min Aung Hlaing during his visit to Thailand last week.

Gen Prayuth said Thailand and Myanmar will work together to facilitate the return to Myanmar of the refugees.

The two countries will ensure the refugees will return safely to Myanmar in compliance with humanitarian principles, Gen Prayuth said.

The two countries have also agreed to cooperate over the nationality verification of Rohingya immigrants.
