The only solution to the crisis is taking back the forcibly displaced people, says the foreign minister

Reiterating Myanmar was not sincere about taking back the Rohingyas, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen says that talks over the matter have resumed after it was stalled due to the pandemic and national elections in the neighbouring country. 

Speaking at an event in Chittagong on Sunday, Momen, however, said that he was optimistic about the repatriation initiative, but was not sure when it would start.

The foreign minister made the remarks while speaking at a book launching ceremony held at the Chittagong Press Club.

At the event, two books by former ambassador to Myanmar Maj (retd) Md Emdadul Islam published by Prothoma Prakashan and Kharimati were unveiled.

Publishing House Kharimati organized the program.

“Bangladesh has taken all steps required for repatriating the Rohingyas. Talks are underway. 

“The entire region, especially the two countries, will witness unrest if the Rohingyas are not taken back. And it will bring no good to any country,” said Momen

“Talks over repatriating Rohingyas are continuing with all countries including China, India and Thailand. All of them agree that Myanmar created the crisis. The resolution to it depends on them. The solution lies in taking back the Rohingyas. However, the Rohingyas do not trust Myanmar,” he furthered. 

“Despite repeated assurances, Myanmar has not taken back any Rohingya. This is regrettable. 

“Myanmar lacks sincerity over repatriation. The initiative to take back the Rohingyas got stalled due to the outbreak of Covid-19 and polls in Myanmar. Now the talks have resumed,” added the minister.
