Quick, safe, sustainable Rohingya repatriation to benefit all: India

External affairs minister writes to Bangladesh counterpart

Repatriation of Rohingyas in a quick, safe and sustainable manner will be beneficial for all, India has said.

Indian External Affairs Minister Dr Subrahmanyam Jaishankar conveyed to his Bangladesh counterpart Dr AK Abdul Momen that his country feels the necessity of quick repatriation of Rohingyas to Myanmar.

The Indian minister mentioned this in a letter written to the Bangladesh foreign minister, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Jaishankar appreciated Bangladesh for sheltering Rohingyas. He reaffirmed his government's commitment to stay beside Bangladesh and its people to overcome the challenges of Covid-19.

The Indian minister also said the partnership between the two countries will continue towards the goal of mutual development.

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen recently said almost three years have passed and although Myanmar agreed to take Rohingyas back, not one of them went back home yet.

Bangladesh is now hosting over 1.1 million Rohingyas in Cox's Bazar district and most of them entered Bangladesh since August 25, 2017 amid military crackdowns in Rakhine State of Myanmar.
