Rohingya crisis: Bangladesh likely to sit with China, Myanmar

Bangladesh will likely to sit with Myanmar and China to resolve the Rohingya crisis. The trilateral meeting will take place during the UN General Assembly in New York this month,  Lt Col (Retd) Muhammad Faruq Khan, president of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs said on Tuesday.

The parliamentary committee held a meeting at the Jatiya Sangsad Complex with Faruq Khan in the chair and discussed the latest development about the repatriation process of Rohingyas to Myanmar.

 He said, during the meeting, the foreign ministry informed that representatives of the three countries will hold talks during the general assembly of the United Nations.

The parliamentary committee also expressed disappointment over the diplomatic efforts which have been so far to repatriate the Rohingya to their homeland in the Rakhine State of Myanmar, he added.

Farook Khan said, there is lacking in the ongoing efforts and the committee asked the ministry to take stronger and more effective move to ensure the repatriation of the Rohingyas.

The Parliamentary Committee said that efforts could be made to resolve the Rohingya problem even through the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and the International Criminal Court (ICC).
