Dhaka seeks global support to end Rohingya crisis

Repatriation must be voluntary, says US
UNB, Dhaka

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen yesterday sought global support through "close partnership and collaboration" to achieve Bangladesh's development goals addressing challenges ahead, including a solution to the Rohingya crisis. "I believe in partnership... I believe in collaboration. We need your help and support to achieve our goals," he said adding that he has no reason not to believe that Bangladesh can achieve its development goals ahead.

The Foreign Minister was addressing a function titled 'Special Briefing on Contemporary Political Issues' at a hotel in the capital last night. International AffairsSub Committee of Bangladesh Awami League arranged the briefing for diplomats stationed in Dhaka. Committee secretary Dr Shammi Ahmed delivered the welcome address before the question-answer session.

The Foreign Minister described the challenges ahead, including climate change, and sought international community's support to address those challenges saying Bangladesh cannot do it alone.

He said Bangladesh seeks close partnership and collaboration from the global community as its resources are not adequate enough.

Meanwhile, US acting Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs Alice Wells yesterday said a favourable atmosphere needs to be created in Myanmar for the voluntary, safe and dignified repatriation of Rohingyas to Rakhine state, said.

"The repatriation must be voluntary, safe and dignified," she said while speaking at a press briefing at the office of the Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commissioner after visiting Shamlapur Rohingya camp in Teknaf upazila.

Alice said the US has been working with all international communities for accelerating the Rohingya repatriation while the issue was prioritised in the Indo-Pacific conference in Thailand.
