“Last month, we witnessed the five years of the 2017 mass exodus of the Rohingyas to Bangladesh from their home country. Despite our bilateral engagements with Myanmar, discussions with partners in a trilateral format, and engagements with the UN and other partners, not a single Rohingya was repatriated to their ancestral homes in Myanmar.

5. The ongoing political turmoil and armed conflicts in the country has made the repatriation of the displaced Rohingyas even more difficult. I hope, the United Nations will play an effective role in this regard.

“Prolonged presence of the Rohingyas in Bangladesh has caused serious ramifications on the economy, environment, security, and sociopolitical stability in Bangladesh.
