Rohingya situation

UN, WB chiefs to visit Bangladesh

UNB

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim are likely to be in Bangladesh on a two-day visit on July 1 mainly to see the Rohingya situation in Cox's Bazar district, reports UNB. They will also hold meetings with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Finance Minister AMA Muhith if the visit takes place, a diplomatic source said on Monday. Foreign Ministry sources, however, said such visit is in discussion but could not give any specific date yet.

The World Bank may provide Bangladesh with a grant worth around $200 million to help tackle the ongoing Rohingya crisis, sources said. Some 700,000 Rohingya crossed the Bangladesh border from Myanmar's Rakhine state since August 25 last year.
