Visiting Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj yesterday said Myanmar must take back its nationals as there should be a permanent solution to the crisis, reports UNB. Sushma Swaraj said this when she met Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her official residence Ganabhaban. PM’s press secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting. “Myanmar must take back their nationals...this is a big burden for Bangladesh. How long will Bangladesh bear it? There should be a permanent solution to this crisis,” Sushma was quoted as saying.

Ihsanul Karim said the Indian Foreign Minister called on the international community to contribute to social and economic development of the Rakhine State of Myanmar. About terrorist acts in Rakhine, Sushma said terrorists can be punished. “Why innocent people?” she said.

Sushma appreciated the Bangladesh stance and the Prime Minister for showing humanitarian attitude to the forcibly displaced people of Myanmar.
