 Myanmar’s ambassador to Bangladesh Aung Kyaw Moeand was summoned at the Foreign ministry yesterday when Dhaka lodged a strong protest over a suspicious movement of Myanmar troops along the border amid protracted Rohingya crisis, reports BSS.
 The Myanmar envoy was told that Dhaka wants the neighbouring country to stop the suspicious movement of its troops along borders with Bangladesh,” official news agency BSS said quoting foreign ministry official, reports UNB.
 The official said Dhaka asked the envoy to convey to his country that such activities could create confusion against the backdrop of the already existing Rohingya crisis.
 Bangladesh noticed suspicious movement of Myanmar troops on fishing trawlers close to the maritime international border since Friday, a source said.
 Such movement of military along the international border might create panic among Rohingyas living on both sides of the border, sources said.
 Bangladesh currently hosts over 1.1 million forcefully displaced Rohingyas in Cox’s Bazar district who were forced to flee their homeland in Myanmar’s Rakhine state when Myanmar army launched a ruthless military crackdown on August 25 in 2017.
The UN called the military actions against Rohingyas as a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing” and other rights groups dubbed it “genocide”.
On the situation in Rakhine more broadly, it is now more than three years since over 1.1 million Rohingyas were forcibly displaced from their homes to Bangladesh because of violence perpetrated by the Myanmar military.
