Lisa Curtis: US will work towards the safe return of Rohingya
Lisa Curtis, deputy assistant to US President Donald Trump and senior director for South and Central Asia at the National Security Council at the White House, has lauded Bangladesh for its extensive humanitarian support to the persecuted Rohingya refugees from strife-torn Rakhine state of Myanmar. While talking to journalists during her visit to Kutupalong Refugee Camp in Ukhiya upazila of Cox’s Bazar on Saturday, Curtis said the US government would work with the Bangladesh government to aid the refugees. The US government will help in the repatriation process, she added, underscoring the need for full implementation of recommendations on resolving the crisis, made by the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State headed by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan. Curtis visited the Kutupalong and Balukhali camps in Ukhiya and Shamlapur camp in Teknaf upazila in the district. US Ambassador to Bangladesh Marcia Stephens Bloom Bernicat and other officials of the embassy accompanied her. Curtis arrived in Bangladesh on Friday on a three-day visit to discuss the issues of bilateral interests and the Rohingya crisis. Earlier, Bangladesh Foreign Secretary Shahidul Haque visited Washington on February 16 and met with Curtis. He invited Curtis to visit Bangladesh and she accepted the invitation at the time.
