Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has urged the United Nations to take immediate steps to resolve the Rohingya crisis and help these displaced people return to their place of origin in Rakhine State with dignity.
The Foreign Minister also recalled the efforts of the international community, including the General Assembly and the Human Rights Council in keeping the issue of Rohingya alive; while the efforts of the Security Council have always fallen short of concrete action.
He expressed the hope that the Council will fulfill its Charter obligations and take urgent measures to resolve the crisis in Myanmar so that the Rohingya people can return to their homes in safety, security and dignity.
He also urged the regional countries and other stakeholders in playing their due role.
“We’ve always called for international community’s active role in resolving the political aspects of the Rohingya problem; addressing the root causes and most importantly fulfilling their fundamental right to return to their homes in safety, security and dignity,” said the Foreign Minister at a high-level virtual discussion on Tuesday organized by Bangladesh Permanent Mission to the UN in New York.
