The minister put stress on forming a commission to look into the Rohingya repatriation
The United Nations (UN) had committed some mistakes in Rohingya issue, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen made the comment on Friday.
He suggested that the UN and all local and international agencies should think in a new way to solve the crisis.
However, he did not elaborate on his comment while talking to media after addressing a programme on National Mourning Day in the capital’s Dhanmondi.
Expressing his disappointment over the role of international community regarding the issue, Momen asked why they were doing business with Myanmar and why the USA was facilitating GSP to the country when it was denying their access to Myanmar.
He put stress on forming a commission to look into the Rohingya repatriation.
All the humanitarian supports had been given from Bangladesh, said the minister adding, “International community, NGOs and other agencies have no work in Bangladesh. Rather, they should go Myanmar and create a congenial environment for Rohingya repatriation.”
Earlier on Thursday, the foreign minister said they would identify and take necessary actions against those, who were opposing to send back the Rohingyas to Myanmar.
The foreign ministry also informed the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs of some NGOs (local and foreign), who were provoking the Rohingyas not to go back to Myanmar.
The committee on Thursday suggested that the NGOs should be monitored.
