Three top UN officials due to visit camps

DIPLOMATIC CORRESPONDENT, Dhaka

Three top UN officials will visit Bangladesh in between April 24 to 26 to explore ways of providing international support to the country which is hosting over one million Rohingyas. The visit of the officials will highlight the ongoing need for support for the humanitarian needs of the Rohingya refugees, an UN press release said.  The three officials are the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Filippo Grandi, the Director General of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) António Vitorino, and the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mark Lowcock.

The delegation in the capital will hold talks with senior government officials, including Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and foreign minister Dr. AK Abdul Momen, to explore ways the international community can provide further support to Bangladesh as hosts to the Rohingya. The delegation will then travel to Cox’s Bazar to meet refugees, assess preparations underway ahead of the monsoon season and visit projects, including those involving food distribution and shelters.

They will also meet refugees who are working as volunteers, and observe a UNHCR-Government of Bangladesh registration exercise, designed to provide identity cards to all refugees, ensuring their access to aid services and protection as well as establishing their right to return to Myanmar.

The aim of the visit is to highlight the need for strong and continued international support for the humanitarian response while solutions for the Rohingya are pursued, including the creation of conditions in Myanmar’s Rakhine State that would allow for the voluntary, safe and dignified return of refugees to their homes.
