FM begins Myanmar tour to see progress over Rohingya return
M Humayun Kabir: Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali began his 4-day visit to Myanmar yesterday to see what steps Myanmar has taken so far for creating conducive environment for safe return of Rohingyas.
The minister accompanied by Foreign Secretary M Shahidul Haque and members of joint working group will discuss with Myanmar leadership over Rohingya repatriation, reports UNB.
The Minister Ali left Dhaka for Myanmar at 11:55pm on Wednesday.
Ali is likely to go to Northern Rakhine apart from holding meetings with Myanmar leaders, another official told UNB.
The Security Council is planning to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Myanmar’s violent crackdown on the Rohingya at an open meeting August 28 to be addressed by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who has called the Rohingya crisis “ethnic cleansing.”
