Newly appointed Country Director of UN World Food Programme (WFP) Domenico Scalpelli presented his credentials to Bangladesh Foreign Minister (FM) AK Abdul Momen at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday. 

At that time, Abdul Momen has urged the WFP and the other UN agencies operating in Myanmar’s Rakhine State to help create an environment conducive to the safe, voluntary, dignified and sustainable repatriation of the Rohingyas, who are now sheltered in Bangladesh, to Myanmar.

The FM recalled his last meeting with WFP Executive Director David M Beasely, and thanked the organisation for commencing work in support of the Rohingya relocated to Bhashan Char.

Domenico Scalpelli informed Abdul Momen about his upcoming trip to Bhashan Char, and thanked the government for providing support to WFP staff with accommodation, transportation and other facilities there.

Momen took interest in Scalpelli’s previous experience of serving in Myanmar, and urged WFP and other UN agencies to help safe, voluntary, dignified and sustainable repatriation of the Rohingyas to Myanmar.
