Security Council delegation wrapped up its visits to Bangladesh and Myanmar on Tuesday, and expressed hope that refugees from the conflict-stricken Rakhine state in Myanmar could return quickly and safely to their homes, a spokesman said.

The U.N. and rights groups have asked Myanmar to guarantee the safety and basic rights of the Rohingya, who are considered illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and subject to systematic discrimination.

"The United States is deeply grateful to the government of Bangladesh for its generous humanitarian response to the Rohingya crisis", the USA president said.

Myanmar signed an agreement with Bangladesh on the return of displaced people from Bangladesh in November past year, announcing a readiness to start the process on January 23.
