14. SOUNDBITE (English) Filippo Grandi, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees:
“I came to Bangladesh because this is such a priority partner country for UNHCR and the Rohingya situation is such a priority crisis. But I also came here to emphasize once more, like I did in Afghanistan, like I did in Cameroon recently, that much as much as we are all focusing on Ukraine as a catastrophic emergency, we must not forget that these other critical situations in the world that need attention and resources.”

16. SOUNDBITE (English) Filippo Grandi, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees:
“It is not to only visit projects but also and especially to talk to people, talk to the Rohingya people. I have met young adolescent girls, I have met religious leaders, Imams from the community. I have met environmental activists. I have met people that have been here many decades. There are not only the recently arrived refugees, and everybody has different perspectives, but there is a very strong sense of uncertainty about the future. Most people and the religious leaders were most emphatic; they want to go back to Myanmar, want to go back to their country, which is just across the river near here. But of course, they want to do this only if their security is guaranteed if their citizenship is recognized - these are virtually stateless people at the moment - and if they will have freedom of movement and access to services."

STORYLINE
The UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, is in Bangladesh for a five-day visit to discuss the needs of Rohingya refugees and support for the country that hosts them.

In 2017, more than 700,000 Rohingya women, men, and children fled to Bangladesh to save their lives, joining thousands of others who had fled in previous years. Currently, Bangladesh hosts over 900,000 Rohingya refugees.

The Government of Bangladesh has generously hosted Rohingya refugees for decades, supported by the international community. As global displacement continues to rise, UNHCR and partners emphasize the need to ensure that the Rohingya situation does not become a forgotten crisis.

A 2022 Joint Response Plan (JRP) for the Rohingya Humanitarian Crisis seeks to support approximately 1.4 million people, including Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar and Bhasan Char and around 540,000 Bangladeshis in neighbouring communities.

Grandi is meeting with the Government of Bangladesh representatives to discuss the ongoing response to Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar and Bhasan Char.
