Momen urges UK to press for Rohingya repatriation

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has urged the UK government and British parliament to continue their efforts in early repatriation of forcibly displaced Rohingya to their motherland Myanmar from Bangladesh.

The foreign minister reiterated the call at a meeting at Foreign Service Academy with the British Parliamentary delegation on the eve of the latter’s visit to the Rohingya camps in Kutupalong and Bhashan Char on Saturday.

The UK Conservative Party MPs Thomas Patrick Hunt and Paul Bristow interacted with the Rohingya leaders in Kutupalong and visited various facilities in the two camps.

They reaffirmed their solidarity with the Rohingya and assured them of remaining seized with their legitimate demands for citizenship, security and freedom of movement in Myanmar.


The UK MPs noted that the British people, especially the British Muslims, felt strongly about the Rohingya situation, and that the international community had a responsibility to stand by this large group of people generously supported by the government and people of Bangladesh.
