An estimated 7,00,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar's Rakhine State since August a year ago after large-scale violence following a military crackdown.

India has conveyed to Myanmar the need for speed, safe, and sustainable repatriation of Rohingya refugees from Bangladesh as Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today wrapped up a two-day visit to that country.

India does not use the phrase Rohingya in official documents, parleying to Myanmar's sensitivity over this term.

In December, India had announced a development assistance of Dollars 25 million for the Rakhine State.

Swaraj reiterated India's readiness and commitment to help Myanmar in addressing issues related to Rakhine State.

Myanmar authorities have said that military crackdown against the rebels was aimed at rooting out Rohingya militants who attacked police posts on the August 25.

A team of the United Nations' powerful body visited Bangladesh and Myanmar from April 28 to May 1, and took a first-hand look at the humanitarian crisis. She welcomed Myanmar's continued commitment to implementing the Rakhine Advisory Commission's recommendations and noted that under the Rakhine State Development Programme, India was already in the implementation stages of various projects that would respond to the needs of different sections of the Rakhine State population.

The 15-member body - which includes Myanmar's ally China - stressed in a statement on Wednesday the importance of conducting "transparent investigations" into accusations of violence against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar's Northwestern Rakhine State and giving immediate aid access to the troubled region, presstv reported. So far, only one family has gone back, but United Nations agencies have claimed that the situation in Rakhine is still not conducive to ensure a safe and dignified re-settlement.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson, Raveesh Kumar said, seven agreements are expected to be signed during the visit.

The MEA press release described the agreement on land border crossing as a "landmark in bilateral relations" as it would allow citizens of the two countries to cross the land border with a passport and visa.
