At this time Dr. Momen asked for China’s cooperation in repatriating Rohingya to Myanmar. He maintained that prolonging the repatriation of Rohingya to Myanmar would pose a threat to security in the region.

He said there were allegations that some Rohingya were involved in drug trafficking. Six of them have been killed in recent clashes between two groups of Rohingya. Moreover, all these incidents are increasing as there is no barbed wire fence.

Due to the delay in the repatriation process, the dissatisfaction of the local people with the Rohingya and foreign aid agencies is increasing day by day.

Besides, the Foreign Minister also expressed Bangladesh’s concern over the mobilization of troops on the Myanmar-Bangladesh border. Dr. Momen noted that providing humanitarian assistance and improving the quality of life for the Rohingya is not enough to solve the problem. Rather, they need a permanent solution through repatriation. The Chinese ambassador agreed with him.
