Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has said Bangladesh is yet to receive any regarding the solution to the Rohingya crisis or repatriation of over 1.1 million Myanmar nationals living in the country.

“Many of you will ask me about the Rohingya crisis: our strategic stance about the Rohingya issue is more or less doing well. I hope in the distant future, I will be able to give you good news about it,” Dr AK Abdul Momen told the parliament on Tuesday.

He made the remark while speaking in the House on the thanksgiving motion on the President’s speech, reports UNB.

The foreign minister, while answering a tabled question in parliament on Monday, said any repatriation process is a complex and lengthy matter.

He had also said Bangladesh continues its efforts taking the world community with it to convince Myanmar for creating a congenial environment in Rakhine State. 

“It can be hoped that Myanmar authorities will create a congenial atmosphere in Rakhine State and it’ll be possible to repatriate Rohingyas to their own country quickly,” Dr Momen told the House.
