Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today called upon the Myanmar government to take back the Rohingyas intruded into Bangladesh.
“I am calling upon Myanmar to repatriate the Rohingyas intruded into Bangladesh in light of the directives of the United Nations,” Quader made the call expressing grave concern of the massive exodus of Rohingya people.
Claiming that a difficult situation is created in Bangladesh following the influx, Quader said, “We are facing an adverse situation centering the issue.”
Rohingyas are being forced to flee the country as horrific attacks are being carried out on them, said Quader, also road transport and bridges minister.
“We are providing shelter to them on humanitarian ground. But the situation is getting tough for us,” he said.
He also called upon the Myanmar government to settle the Rohingya refugee crisis through bilateral discussion.
