Bangladesh has said not only bilateral, but the international community's urgent action is needed for the permanent solution to Rohingya crisis.
Permanent Representative of Bangladesh to the UN Ambassador Masud Bin Momen made the remark at an event titled 'Strengthening of the Coordination of Humanitarian and Disaster Relief Assistance of the United Nations, including Special Economic Assistance' held at General Assembly, UN Headquarter in New York, said the Bangladesh Mission on Monday.
Mentioning Bangladesh government's continued engagement with the Myanmar authorities in good faith, the Ambassador said, "We stress that Bangladesh can bilaterally address only perhaps the issue of the possible voluntary repatriation of the Rohingya to Myanmar, but all related larger questions and issues would have to be addressed by Myanmar with the international community's continued support and monitoring on behalf of the Rohingya".
He urged the donor countries and organisations to respond to the pressing and increasing needs for resources identified by the concerned humanitarian actors, in the spirit of responsibility and burden sharing.
Ambassador Masud reiterated Bangladesh's appreciation for humanitarian assistance provided so far, and pledged made in response to the UN revised response plan to the tune of $434 million for the first six-month period.
He thanked the EU and Kuwait for convening the high-level Pledging Conference in Geneva on October 23 in 2017.
