Turkish Ambassador to Bangladesh Mustafa Turan extended his support to Bangladesh on the Rohingya crisis

Turkish Ambassador to Bangladesh Mustafa Osman Turan on Sunday said the only solution to the Rohingya crisis is their repatriation to their place of origin in Myanmar.

"Turkey always supports Bangladesh in resolving the Rohingya crisis and will remain in favour of Bangladesh in the future, too," he said while meeting Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at the latter’s official residence Ganabhaban.

The prime minister expressed her gratitude to the Turkish first lady for visiting the Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar soon after the Myanmar nationals were forced to take shelter in Bangladesh, said the PM's Assistant Press Secretary MM Emrul Kayas.

Noting the recent mutual visits of the foreign ministers of the two countries, she expressed satisfaction over the existing bilateral relations and hoped the ties would get stronger during his tenure in Bangladesh.

Mustafa Osman, who came to Bangladesh taking his first-ever assignment as ambassador, expressed his country's desire to increase bilateral trade between the two countries.

Various trade organisations and businesspeople have expressed their desire to invest in Bangladesh, he added.

Mustafa Osman said a Turkish organization is going to invest US $100 million in the LPG sector of Bangladesh.

A webinar aiming to boost investment, was held on January 21 between Bangladesh's BIDA and Turkey's BEIK. Many people from the business industry in Turkey attended the webinar.

The Turkey envoy expressed his gratitude for naming an important avenue of Bangladesh after the name of former Turkish President Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Sheikh Hasina expressed her satisfaction knowing the eagerness of Turkish investors to invest in Bangladesh and thanked the Turkish government for repairing a Bangladesh naval ship that was badly damaged at the Beirut blast in Lebanon.

She assured the Turkish envoy of extending all-out support during his stay in Bangladesh, and wished him success and good health.

The prime minister also greeted the Turkish president.
