Thailand presses for more efforts to aid Rohingya

Thailand today asked Bangladesh to help verify the nationality of Rohingya ethnic people on its border with Myanmar.

Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra raised the issue during bilateral talks with her Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina on the sidelines of the Second Asia-Pacific Water Summit.

The unsettled issue of Rohingya minority group between Bangladesh and Myanmar has led to continued departures of numbers of the ethnic people from Myanmar, many of whom landed illegally on Thai soil.
