Stop the war, PM tells UNGA PM Hasina denounces tragedy of rich nations on climate PM seeks effective role of UN, global leaders on Rohingya issue
DOT Desk: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina gave utmost importance on dialogue to resolve crises and disputes, urging the world community to stop arms race, war and sanctions for building a peaceful world, reports TBS.
“My urge to the conscience of the world community- stop the arms race, war, and sanctions, ensure food and security of the children; build peace,” she said. The Premier made this call while delivering her speech at the 77th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) here in the UN headquarters.
A country of fertile, densely populated deltas, low-lying Bangladesh is among the most vulnerable nations in the world to climate change.
But the urgency of the situation is not being matched by actions of countries responsible for emissions, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today called upon the United Nations (UN) and the global leaders to take effective measures for sustainable repatriation of the Rohingyas, voicing a warning that if the problem persists further, it may affect stability and security in the region and beyond.
“The ongoing political turmoil and armed conflicts in the country (Myanmar) has made the repatriation of the displaced Rohingyas more difficult. I hope the United Nations will play an effective role in this regard,” she said in her 77th UN General Assembly (UNGA) address.
The Prime Minister told the gathering of world leaders that last month Bangladesh witnessed the five years of the 2017 mass exodus of the Rohingyas from their home country.
“Not a single Rohingya was repatriated to their ancestral home Myanmar, despite our bilateral engagements with Myanmar, discussions with partners in trilateral format and engagements with the UN and other partners to assist Myanmar to create necessary conditions for safe and dignified repatriation,” she said.
