Indian External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar reiterated that India is supportive of Bangladesh's efforts to resolve the Rohingya problem.

In a recent letter written to Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen, Indian External Affairs Minister mentioned that the safe, speedy, and sustainable return of displaced persons to Myanmar is in the best interests of all concerned.

This is also in the best interest of lasting regional security and stability, he added.

Indian External Affairs Minister also expressed his deep admiration for Bangladesh in shouldering the burden of hosting around one million displaced persons from Myanmar's Rakhine state.
