The UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is concerned about India’s plans to deport Rohingya refugees from Myanmar, according to his spokesperson Farhan Haq. Responding to a question on Monday about reports that India was going to send back Rohingyas, Haq said, “Obviously we have our concern about the treatment of refugees. Once refugees are registered they are not to be returned back to the countries where they fear persecution.” Guterres, who was the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), is deeply attached to the cause of refugees.
