Foreign Minister of Bangladesh, Dr AK Abdul Momen today urged United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and the international community to constructively engage with Myanmar for the early commencement of Rohingya repatriation to their homeland in Rakhine, reports BSS.
“Rohingyas are Myanmar nationals and they must return to Myanmar,” he stated.
Dr AK Abdul Momen said this in a video statement released at the high-level segment of the 46th session of the UN Human Rights Council.
He stated Bangladesh remains to provide temporary shelter to the persecuted Rohingyas from its commitment to Human Rights.
He underscored the need to ensure implementation of the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on the Rakhine State, ensure accountability and justice, and more importantly, creation of a conducive environment in Myanmar.
“Human Rights Council should emerge as a bastion to defend human rights following the principles of universality, impartiality, and non-selectivity,” he said.
The foreign minister mentioned that the vision of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman continues to inspire Bangladesh to promote and protect the human rights of all.
