Rakhine State’s government says it will provide any help for those who want to settle in southern Maungdaw Township and southern Yathaytaung Township.

“As far as I know, there arrived some people in Inndin who came there to settle. If the state government is officially informed, we will provide help necessary help for them,” said Agriculture and Livestock Minister Kyaw Lwin for Rakhine State.

A new ethnic village is to be established near Inndin village in southern Maungdaw Township. The new village was reportedly named Rammawady and the number of the population was submitted to the government.

Rakhine state’s chief minister Nyi Pu and ministers visited villages on January 8 in southern Maungdaw Township and southern Yathaytaung Township and met ethnic people there to encourage them. Many ethnic people fled their homes in Rakhine State due to attacks by ARSA extremists.
