Govt wants to resolve it peacefully
Law Minister Anisul Huq yesterday said the government wants to resolve the Rohingya crisis in a peaceful manner and the foreign ministry is working to this effect.
“It is an internal matter of Myanmar, but they [Rohingyas] cannot be brutally killed or forced to leave their country. Our foreign ministry is working so that international pressure is put on Myanmar to stop such atrocities. The ministry has achieved some success and will continue to do so,” he said.
The minister said this while talking to reporters at the inaugural ceremony of a training course for newly appointed assistant judges at the Judicial Administration Training Institute in Dhaka. Forty five assistant judges are participating in the two-month training programme.
“We have considered the humanitarian aspect in order to solve the crisis and that is why we are giving shelter to the Rohingyas,” he said.
The minister added that it is a matter to be decided by the Rohingyas whether they will approach the international court to get redress.
