Al Jazeera report on Bhasan Char ‘false’, part of its vindictive approach: Momen

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen today rejected Al Jazeera's latest report on Bhasan Char, saying it is based on false information and part of its "vindictive approach" towards Muslim majority countries.

"They're doing it from day one. Their aim is to confuse people with false information," he told UNB.

The minister said it is Al Jazeera's "vindictive approach" towards any Muslim government, especially against countries which are doing well.

The Qatar-based media reported that aid agencies warned, with the cyclone season fast approaching, a group of Rohingya refugees on Bhasan Char could be stranded and face food shortages when severe storms strike.

Momen said some people were interviewed in the report and their faces were covered.

"It's their job to run false news. So, nothing to say about it," said the Foreign Minister.

On the technical team's observation on Bhasan Char, the foreign minister earlier told UNB that "They have a very good and positive observation. Concisely, they have given a positive observation."
