Zakharova said Russian Federation welcomed the measures taken by the "Myanmar Government to implement the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State headed by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan".

Myanmar insisted on Friday that it was not barring aid workers but a government spokesman said the authorities on the ground might have concerns over security. From Bangladesh, some Rohingyas have crossed into India.
