Summoned Myanmar envoy denies atrocities on Rohingyas
The Bangladesh Foreign Ministry has expressed “tremendous concern” over the ongoing persecution of Rohingya muslims in Myanmar’s Rakhine state. Secretary (bilateral and consular) of the ministry, Kamrul Ahsan, told reporters that Myanmar envoy to Bangladesh, Myo Myint Than, was summoned to the ministry on Wednesday afternoon to be informed about Bangladesh’s stance concerning the matter.

The envoy, however, had downplayed the scale of the problem, according to the ministry secretary. “He said news regarding persecution of Rohingyas is 'fabricated', maintaining Myanmar’s long-standing stance on the issue.”

The ministry handed over a letter to the envoy, asking his country’s authorities to intervene so that people fleeing from the conflict can return to their homes. In the 45-minute-long meeting, the ministry also told the Myanmar ambassador that Bangladesh is looking forward to a peaceful resolution of the ongoing conflict.
