Rohingyas shouldn’t be punished for action of Myanmar govt – Peter Haas

United States ambassador to Bangladesh Peter Haas on Thursday said that it was the collective responsibility of the entire world to make sure that the conditions were in place in Myanmar so that the Rohingyas could return to their homeland with dignity.

“They need to be protected, educated, and they need to enjoy the dignity where they are living,” he said while attending an event as a keynote speaker.

The US ambassador said that the Rohingyas should not be punished for the action taken by Myanmar and they should be treated well without any discrimination towards them.

Ambassador Haas laid emphasis on constant collective pressure on Myanmar, noting that the solution to the crisis unfortunately was not so easy.

He said that they were also exploring the option of resettlement, but it offered very limited opportunity as it was meant for only the most vulnerable people.

The ambassador also highlighted the importance of holding people responsible for the genocide.

He appreciated Bangladesh’s generosity in providing shelter to the Rohingyas; otherwise, he thinks the situation would have been far worse.

The Center for Peace Studies of the South Asian Institute of Policy and Governance and the Office of External Affairs of North South University jointly organised the event to observe the International Day of Peace 2023 at North South University.

The theme of this year’s Peace Day event is — Actions for peace: Our ambition for the #GlobalGoals’.
