Secretariat Correspondent: Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen sent a letter to honorary Consul General of different countries working in the country and its honorary Consul General in other countries urging them to involve respective government and civil society in creating atmosphere for Rohingya repatriation.

A Foreign Ministry press release issued on Tuesday came up with the information.

According to the press release, in the letter, the Foreign Minister said densely populated Bangladesh is not able to carry out the burden of the Rohingya people forcibly displaced from Myanmar indefinitely. Rohingyas are deprived of the basic rights for the era.  If their stay in Bangladesh is prolonged, the country's security and stability of the region can be threatened.

Dr. Momen said, “Bangladesh has been trying sincerely to solve the problem bilaterally including the signing of three agreements with Myanmar for permanent solution of Rohingya crisis”.

Myanmar's failure to create visible support friendly facilities for the Rohingyas in Rakhine state and due to Extreme negligence of Myanmar, safe, dignified and valuator repatriation of Rohingya people are still uncertain.

In these circumstances, Bangladesh expects the active role of international community in this regard, he added.

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina gave shelter to the Rohingyas on humanitarian grounds amid many challenges and obstruction.
