KUALA LUMPUR: Refugee protection for ethnic Chins will be maintained, in light of the security situation in southern Chin State in Myanmar, announced the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

UNHCR released a statement today affirming that Chin refugees may still require international protection, based on "a number of new reports and assessment which did not support its original conclusion of fundamental and durable changes in Chin State and Sagaing Region".
