Solution to Rohingya crisis unlikely if impunity, geopolitical appeasement continues: Momen

FINANCIAL EXPRESS

 Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Tuesday said there will be no sustainable solution to the Rohingya crisis in near future if the defiance, impunity and geopolitical appeasement of Myanmar continues.

He said a culture of appeasement of Myanmar geopolitically through enhanced bilateral trade, investment and development assistance continues to grow while the country has done nothing to redress the rapes, gender-based violence, mass atrocities and genocide committed on its minorities that its neighbour Bangladesh diligently continues to host in temporary camps that threatens its very security and sovereignty.

FINANCIAL EXPRESS

Bangladesh's decision to issue national passports to Rohingya living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) will be harmful to the country's interest, opined foreign affairs experts.

Recently, Saudi Arabia, the largest employer of Bangladeshi workers - numbering 2.2 million, asked Bangladesh to issue passports to around 54,000 Rohingya living there.

Apparently under pressure from the Saudi government, Bangladesh has, in principle, agreed to issue national passports to Saudi Rohingyas on conditions.

They said if the kingdom was really to send back the Rohingyas, they should mount pressure on Myanmar. They questioned as to why Bangladesh, which had taken in over a million Rohingyas, should take the 54,000 more.
