Indonesia, Malaysia agree to provide temporary shelter to migrants stranded at sea 

KUALA LUMPUR: Indonesian and Malaysian governments have agreed to provide temporary shelter to thousands of migrants stranded at sea.

At a meeting held here the leaders of the two countries agreed to provide temporary shelter to 7,000 migrants stranded at sea. They further said that we have agreed to provide the migrants temporary shelter on the condition that the international community will ensure completion of their repatriation process within a year.

The two countries said that they fear that if the migrants from Myanmar and Bangladesh were allowed to enter the two countries the number of migrants along their seashores would swell.
