Foreign Minister of Bangladesh said on repatriation of Rohingyas to their place of origin in Rakhine State

Bangladesh Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen said that the repatriation of Rohingyas who fled Myanmar is a priority program of the Bangladesh government. Although some countries and organizations are urging Rohingyas to be accepted in Bangladesh by teaching them vocational skills. According to reports from Bangladesh on August 22, Minister AK Abdul Momen said that it is impossible to accept Rohingyas because the situation in Bangladesh is already densely populated from the beginning. The minister said that the Myanmar side has agreed to call back and Bangladesh is hoping that the Rohingyas can be sent back to their homes as soon as possible, which the two sides are still discussing.


August 25th will be the sixth anniversary of the Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh due to the Myanmar army's genocide. It's been six years, but the Rohingya still haven't been able to return to their homes. The United Nations and International warning that the current situation in Myanmar has made it impossible for the Rohingyas to return home. They are urged to return home only when there is security and guarantee.

Human rights group HRW also criticized the UN Security Council's failure to hold the Myanmar military generals accountable for the crimes and genocide committed against the Rohingya. The refugees said that the food program that the United Nations is helping Rohingya refugees with has also been reduced this year due to insufficient funds, making it difficult to eat.
