Rohingya crisis: Where regional & intl. interest is greater
Mohiuddin Ahmad, Author and researcher : There are many equations in case of international relations. Till now, many including the heads of different international organizations have paid tours to our country regarding the Rohingya crisis. But only the UNSC has the capability to pose the pressure needed to solve the issue. Since two influential members of the UNSC have different arguments with the Rohingya issue, there is a great suspicion that the pressure will really intensify toward Myanmar. On the other hand, Bangladesh is maintaining a bilateral relationship with Myanmar. I believe business and transactions are also at a good pace. Our government wants to gain international community’s support and settlement with Myanmar at the same time.
With such complication, it is hard to understand what discussions are taking places.
Because such discussions where the international communities are involved, are very little disclosed publicly. This is why it is not possible to forecast the chain of actions.
But since the World Bank has provided a 2 year financial aid, it is very clear that there will not be any changes visible regarding this minority group.
Bangladesh has good terms with China and Russia. China Russia and India have vowed together of not allowing USA entering to the region.
If this matter is kept into mind by the political guardians of our country then they will have to think about how they will make the balance. Geographically the Rakhine region is very important.
All China, Russia, USA and India has their interests here. National, regional and international interests are more important than morality in case of international relations.
