Demanding trial for the atrocities against Rohingyas in Myanmar, Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohammad on Friday said Malaysia and other Asean nations would continue to do whatever is necessary to solve the Rohingya crisis.

“I think that a genocide was committed against the Rohingyas in Myanmar, and its trial should be held,” he said during a bilateral meeting with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Baku Congress Centre in Azerbaijan, on the sidelines of the 18th NAM Summit.

Bangladesh Foreign Secretary Shahidul Haque briefed reporters after the meeting, reports BSS.

Mahathir further said the members of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (Asean), which includes Malaysia, would continue their efforts to find a solution to the Rohingya crisis.

He told Sheikh Hasina that Malaysia would continue operation of its hospital in Cox’s Bazar, and asked her about Bhasan Char, where the Bangladesh government plans to relocate about 100,000 Rohingyas.

Sheikh Hasina apprised the Malaysian prime minister of different aspects of the island including its safety and security, the foreign secretary told reporters.

Simultaneously, the Bangladesh prime minister explained to him about the present state of the island.

The Malaysian prime minister said his government would continue to recruit more Bangladeshi workers.

He also talked about the safety and security of the Bangladeshi workers in Malaysia, Shahidul Haque said.

Terming Malaysia’s ties with Bangladesh as “very deep,” Mahathir assured that the Malaysian investment in Bangladesh would be boosted further.
