UNITED NATIONS: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim will visit Bangladesh on Sunday for finding comprehensive solutions to Rohingya refugee issue.

According to UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric, UN officials will also assess progress towards a safe, voluntary and dignified return of refugees in line with international standards.

More than 670,000 Rohingya refugees fled from Myanmar's northern Rakhine State since August 2017 after Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army extremists launched attacks on police outposts in the state.
