Take in one lakh Rohingyas

Dhaka has requested London to take in at least one lakh of over 10 lakh Rohingyas who have fled genocide in Myanmar’s Rakhine State and taken shelter in Bangladesh.

Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen made the proposal during a bilateral meeting with British Secretary of State Elizabeth Truss in Kigali, Rwanda, on the sidelines of a Commonwealth event on Sunday.

“If the UK, a global leader in justice and human rights, considers taking in one lakh Rohingyas, they could get the chance to have a better life, and it will also lessen the “unfair burden” on Bangladesh.”

He said that if the UK, a global leader in justice and human rights, considers taking in one lakh Rohingyas, they could get the chance to have a better life, and it will also lessen the “unfair burden” on Bangladesh.

“While the UK could look into it [resettlement of Rohingyas], the best solution to the Rohingya crisis, however, lies in their safe and sustainable return to their homeland in Myanmar.”

In response, Truss told Momen, “While the UK could look into it [resettlement of Rohingyas], the best solution to the Rohingya crisis, however, lies in their safe and sustainable return to their homeland in Myanmar.”

Momen said Rohingya repatriation is not progressing for a lack of political commitment from Myanmar.

Both the ministers welcomed the proposals by the two foreign offices to jointly organise a conference on Rohingya refugees, a Global Girls Education Summit, and climate leaders’ dialogue in Dhaka and London.

Momen sought an extension of the UK’s zero-duty GSP facility beyond 2029, saying Bangladesh’s apparel industry suffered losses due to post-pandemic cancellations of orders, non-payments by UK retailers and rising cost of living.
