    Published on June 27, 2019

    Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina has accused Myanmar of deliberately delaying the process of Rohingya repatriation.

    Replying to a query in the Parliament Ms. Hasina said Bangladesh has signed three pacts with Myanmar for repatriation of the Rohingyas within two years.

    She said Myanmar is conducting propaganda at international level that the process of repatriation is being delayed due to non-cooperation of Bangladesh. Ms. Hasina said it is the duty of Myanmar government to bring Rohingyas back to their home.

    The Prime Minister informed parliament that Bangladesh has been continuing its diplomatic efforts with Myanmar as well as with international and regional forums to send back the forcibly displaced Rohingyas to their homeland.

    Ms. Hasina is embarking on a 5 day visit to China from July 1 where the issue of Rohingya repatriation to Myanmar will figure in the discussion between the two countries.
