NAYPYIDAW, Myanmar - Aung San Suu Kyi said Tuesday that Myanmar stood ready "at any time" to verify the status of the 410,000 Rohingya Muslims who have fled violence in the last month to aid the return of those eligible for resettlement.

"We are prepared to start the verification process at any time," she said referring to those who have fled in an unprecedented exodus to Bangladesh, without guaranteeing a return for all of the refugees.
