Prime minister seeks support from friendly countries for Rohiynga repatriation

Irked by the very slow pace of repatriation of Myanmar nationals Rohiynga from Bangladesh, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has sought help from friendly countries to gear up the process, reports UNB.
“The visible progress on taking back the Rohiynga people to Myanmar is very slow till today. I seek the cooperation of our friendly countries in this regard,” she said.

The Prime Minister made the request to Austrian Federal Chancellor Khristian Kern during their formal bilateral talks between the two leaders at the Federal Chancellery in Vienna on Tuesday.

Sheikh Hasina said nearly four lakh Rohingya refugees have been staying in Bangladesh and the Bangladesh government has given them shelter on humanitarian ground.
“Myanmar must take back the Rohingya refugees,” she said.

After attending the International Conference on the IAEA Technical Cooperation Programme in Vienna, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina returned home on Wednesday morning.
