Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has sought UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres' personal intervention over the Rohingya issue, saying it is now needed more than ever as the political situation in Myanmar has deteriorated.
The foreign minister also said it is frustrating that many influential countries have improved their economic and business relations with Myanmar while publicly decrying the human rights violations there.
Dr Momen made the remarks during his meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres at the UN Headquarters yesterday.
The Foreign Minister also briefed the secretary general about the facilities in Bhasan Char and stressed on the importance of UN's operations there.
The Foreign Minister thanked him for his continued attention to the Rohingya issue.
During the meeting, they discussed the current political situation in Myanmar and its impacts on the repatriation of the Rohingya refugees from Bangladesh to Myanmar.
