 Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali on Tuesday said Asean, as a successful regional body, could play an important role in addressing the Rohingya crisis. 

He also sought Singapore’s support in the effort for the early repatriation of forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals from Bangladesh and also for securing a durable solution to the Rohingya problem.

New High Commissioner of Singapore to Bangladesh Derek LohEu-Tse met the Foreign Minister and discussed the issue.
