Bangladesh seeks Australia’s support to speed up repatriation process of Rohingyas

Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has sought Australia’s support in expediting the repatriation process of Rohingyas to Myanmar.

He made the request when departing Australian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Julia Niblett made a farewell call on with Foreign Minister Momen at his ministry today.

Momen requested Niblett to pursue her government to operate direct flight and cargo from Bangladesh to Australia, open visa office in Bangladesh and to invest in the country in a large scale.

The High Commissioner assured the foreign minister of taking up the requests with her government. 

While exchanging pleasantries, the minister expressed his concern over the ongoing bushfire in Australia as it made serious damages to the lives, property and environment, according to a press statement.
