Army chief to visit Myanmar next month

Work of barbed wire fence along Rohingya camps begins

Mentioning that barbed-wire fences will be erected around Kutupalong and Nayapara Rohingya camps, Army Chief General Aziz Ahmed yesterday said initial work on installing the boundary pillars has started.

“Next month, I’ll go to Myanmar where we will discuss issues relating to improving the relationship between the two countries. Many issues will come up and we may talk about the Rohingya issue but whatever happens, it will be in the interest of Bangladesh,” he said.
