Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has sought Indian cooperation in order to take steps for mounting strong pressure on Myanmar to resolve the Rohingya crisis.

He made the request while addressing the concluding session of India-Bangladesh Friendship Dialogue at a hotel in Cox's Bazar on Saturday, reports BSS.

He said: “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has set a unique example in terms of humanity before the world by giving shelters to the forcefully displaced Rohingyas in Bangladesh."
