'We hope Myanmar repatriates their Rohingya citizens'

Staff Correspondent
"We hope Myanmar repatriates their Rohingya citizens", said Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen.

He was responding to a question from reporters after paying homage at Bangabandhu's tomb on behalf of Sylhet Metropolitan Awami League at Tungipara in Gopalganj on Saturday afternoon.

On the Rohingya issue, the Foreign Minister said, "All countries have unanimously agreed that the Rohingya should return to their country. In the effort we have been making for so long, all the countries in the UN have unanimously passed the resolution. We believe that this will put more pressure on Myanmar to repatriate their people."

"Myanmar has said they will take back the Rohingya and they have reached an agreement with us. Myanmar has promised to repatriate the Rohingya, but they have not kept their word," he said.

"Myanmar is expected to take back its citizens in the future. Because Myanmar has never said they will not take back their citizens. We hope they will take their people and create an environment for them to go voluntarily."

Regarding the killing at the border, the foreign minister said, "The governments of India and Bangladesh do not want a single person to be killed at the border. The two governments have discussed and met at different levels. Despite all this, killings are taking place on the border, which is sad for Bangladesh and shameful for India."
