Sheikh Hasina is scheduled to leave Dhaka for New York to attend the 73rd session of UNGA on Friday

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will place fresh specific proposals at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) seeking a stronger role from the international community to compel Myanmar act promptly and take Rohingyas back.
 
"She [PM Hasina] will place some specific proposals in continuation of her previous five-point proposal," Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali told a press conference at his ministry on Thursday, reports UNB.
 
During the 72nd UNGA session, the prime minister placed a five-point specific proposal to ensure the sustainable return of all Rohingyas which was appreciated by the international community.

Sheikh Hasina is scheduled to leave Dhaka for New York on Friday.
 
More than 700,000 Rohingyas fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar’s Rakhine State since late August last year after the security forces launched a brutal crackdown on the ethnic minority.

Countries like the US, the UK, Canada, France, Australia, OIC member states and other countries are also preparing to take up the issue seeking an early solution to the issue, a diplomatic source said.
 
Bangladesh has urged the member states of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to support Rohingya issue in their engagements during the forthcoming UNGA.
 
Bangladesh will also highlight the progress made so far, impressive economic growth and issues related to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and climate change in the UNGA.
 
The general debate of the 73rd session will be held from September 25 to October 1.
