Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has said that despite repeated promises, Myanmar is not repatriating the Rohingyas; six months ago they said everything will be settled but no progress has been made as yet.
“Not a single Rohingya has been taken back; how long can one tolerate blatant lies?”, the foreign minister said while talking to the media on Wednesday (Jun 12), at the Padma Guest House after a meeting with foreign diplomats.
The foreign minister asked friendly nations to take steps against Myanmar if she does not repatriate Rohingyas.
If you have any desire to safeguard human rights, then please take action, pleaded the foreign minister.Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen at the Padma Guest House at a meeting with foreign diplomats on Wednesday (Jun 12).

“The prime minister will go to China next month where the Rohingya issue will be presented; we will tell China that if peace and stability are hampered in Bangladesh, then Chinese interests will be adversely affected.”
If militancy increases then Chinese investment plans will fail, he added.
