There might be a joint media release to be issued tomorrow or Monday based on what the diplomats have seen, a diplomatic source said.

The diplomats returned to Dhaka after 5:00pm today.

Covid-19 health guidelines set by the Government of Bangladesh were followed during the visit. 

The envoys look forward to continuing dialogue with the Government of Bangladesh on its Bhasan Char project, as well as with the UN and other relevant partners following the visit.

The government has planned to relocate one lakh Rohingyas to Bhasan Char to decongest the overcrowded camps in Cox's Bazar that have temporarily been accommodating over 1.1 million Rohingyas.
