A group of diplomats, stationed in Dhaka, on Wednesday visited the displaced Rohingyas who have taken shelter in Bangladesh amid persecution by Myanmar security forces in their country.  Sixty-three representatives, including ambassadors and high commissioners of 30 countries, visited the Rohingya camps in Kutupalong and Balukhali, and talked to the Rohingya people.

They also went to Bangladesh-Myanmar border at Ghumdhum in Bandarban district to see the border situation. Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali, State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam, Foreign Secretary M Shahidul Haque and foreign ministry senior officials accompanied them.

Talking to reporters, Shahriar Alam said, "Although the Rohingya crisis is Myanmar's own problem, Bangladesh is being affected by it. Bangladesh is facing a fresh influx of Rohingyas in the face of persecution by the Myanmar security forces. The problem was created by the Myanmar government and they'll have to resolve it."

He also urged the United Nations and other international organisations to mount pressure on Myanmar to take back Rohingyas refugees from Bangladesh.

Earlier, the diplomats flew in here from Dhaka around 12 noon to see the Rohingya plight. After reaching Cox's Bazar, the diplomats directly went to Kutupalong Rohingya camp to visit the refugees.

Over 370,000 Rohingyas, mostly women, children and old people, fled violence to seek safety in Bangladesh since August 25 when Myanmar security forces launched attacks on them Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine State. unb
