Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has highly appreciated Oman’s support at the International Fora on Rohingya issue, particularly its role at the recently 3rd Committee Resolution at the UN on the Rohingya issue and also in the Gambia- led case in ICJ.

Momen made the remark when the Head of Mission of Embassy of Sultanate of Oman Ta’eebsalim ‘Abdullah Al ‘ Alawi paid his farewell call on the Foreign Minister at his official residence recently, said a foreign ministry press release on Saturday.

Foreign Minister expressed the sincerest gratitude to the government of Oman for ensuring necessary care to approximately 700,000 Bangladeshi workers, the third largest of diaspora in the Middle East during the critical time.

The CDA expressed his deep appreciation for the support and cooperation extended to him during his tenure in Bangladesh.

Ta’eebsalim ‘Abdullah Al ‘ Alawi appreciated the unprecedented role of the government of Bangladesh  in hosting the persecuted 1.1 million Rohingyas in Cox’s Bazar while having so many constraints such as loss of biodiversity and deterioration of law-order situation.

He appreciated the decision of Bangladesh Government of relocating some of the Rohingyas from Cox’s Bazar to Bhasan Char as he found it conducive and safe for living.

He further made an observation that the living standard of Bhasan Char will be apparently better than many parts of rural areas of Bangladesh.
