Rohingya crisis: PM's aide urges UN sanctions on Myanmar
An adviser to Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has recommended that the United Nations should issue an international sanction on Myanmar to address the recent Rohingya crisis, reports BBC Bangla on Friday. “There is no alternative to make the Myanmar government realise the gravity of the situation,” said political adviser to the Bangladesh premier, HT Imam, during an interview on BBC Bangla, Probaho.

Adviser Imam drew reference to similar events in the past to substantiate his comment about issuing international sanctions on Myanmar. "The UN issued sanctions on Iran for nuclear weapons. Sanctions were issued on Syria, Iraq and other countries as well. Nothing but similar international pressure can make the Myanmar government reconsider their actions towards the Rohingya issue,” he said.

It would also be inhumane to not let some of the refugees enter.’’ The refugees are being provided humanitarian aid such as food and medicines, the minister confirmed.
