Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Saturday expressed hope that the US President-elect Joe Biden will lend his voice to resolving the Rohingya crisis and provide support for the quick repatriation of Rohingyas to Myanmar.
“Biden is a mature politician, new possibilities for working with the US in many aspects have emerged since his election,” Monem said.
The Minister came up with the remarks after visiting Rajshahi University (RU) in the afternoon.
Recently Myanmar also held elections, he said adding that “Now it’s time for Aung San Suu Kyi's government to erase their bad reputation globally by taking back the Rohingya people to their homeland.”
Human rights are being violated in Myanmar, hopefully the Biden-government will also be vocal in this regard, the Minister said.
“We are looking forward to building stronger ties with the United States as it always prioritizes human rights. Hopefully the government will not patronize any war or destruction and play a positive role to secure peace globally”, FM said.
