PM to leave for NY on Saturday, present proposal on Rohingya issue at UN
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is leaving Dhaka for New York, US on Saturday to attend the 72nd session of United Nations (UN) General Assembly, where she will present Bangladesh's proposal on the ongoing Rohingya crisis in Myanmar. She will address the General Assembly on September 21 and have a meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on the same day, reported BSS. At the General Assembly, the prime minister will highlight the basic causes behind the Rohingya crisis, Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali said at a press conference in Padma state guest house in Dhaka on Thursday. “She will ask [the UN] for immediate implementation of the recommendations made by Kofi Annan's commission [Advisory Commission on Rakhine State],” the foreign minister said. “Referring to Myanmar’s violent ethnic cleansing operations on the Rohingya as a major violation of human rights, the prime minister will call upon the world leaders to play an effective role in this regard.” Terming the 72nd session of the General Assembly highly significant, Mahmood said: “This year’s conference is being held at a time when hundreds of thousands innocent Rohingya refugees are fleeing to Bangladesh to escape death in Myanmar. “In the last three weeks, nearly 400,000 Rohingya refugees have entered Bangladesh. Prior to that, around 400,000 more Rohingya were already staying in Bangladesh. Our country is now facing an unprecedented crisis in providing humanitarian aid to thousands of Rohingya refugees, and trying to return them to their own country.”
