Bhutanese government on the refugee situation: Bhutan News Service

Very interesting write-up today by the exile-run news service on the situation in the camps and an apparent disagreement between the Prime Minister of Bhutan and the Opposition Leader (pictured below.)  The PM suggests repatriation might be possible for some of the refugees; while the OL vehemently opposes it. (Somehow I would have imagined it would be the other way around.)

    • Because I’d assume a younger person might be more open to benevolence toward the disenfranchised. That’s age-ist, I know.
