Bangladesh has informed the United Nations about problems regarding the Rohingya issue and Myanmar's lack of cooperation in starting repatriation.

The UN chief expressed his deep concern over the delay in Rohingya repatriation, the Bangladesh Permanent Mission to the UN said in a statement on Tuesday.
