 “We hope it would be a fruitful meeting,” Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen told reporters yesterday Wednesday about the tripartite talks, reports UNB. He said the meeting will be held at secretary level while such tripartite meeting was last held on January 20 last year.
 Regarding the list sent to list of 8 lakh 40 thousand Rohingyas to Myanmar for verification Foreign Minister said “Myanmar has verified very few people. They verified only 42 thousand people. There is serious lack of seriousness.”
 Dr Momen said they are doing their part of the job but Myanmar is not responding the same way.
Responding to a question, he said he is always hopeful of beginning repatriation as history says they took back their nationals in 1978 and 1992.
 People live in hope and Ronhingya refugees also do so and thus they spent another, 2020, that they would have a dignified return to their homeland in Myanmar. But, the hope for a better day did not come.
 The government, earlier, hinted that the repatriation talks will begin this month as there was no Rohingya repatriation and discussion in 2020 as those collided with Covid-19 pandemic and Myanmar general elections.
