PM seeks global support for relocating Rohingya refugees
The prime minister said this in a luncheon meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the sidelines of the 53rd Munich Security Conference at Hotel Bayerrischer Hof in Munich, Germany on Saturday, reports BSS. Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh has taken the issue of extruded Myanmar citizens from humanitarian point of view. But their stay and activities in Cox’s Bazar, an important tourist town, is causing destruction of environment, sanitation system, landscape and nature, forcing them to live in an inhumane condition. “So Bangladesh government wants to shift them to an open and healthy area by providing all the civic facilities,” she said seeking support of Germany and other countries in this regard. In their hour-long meeting, they discussed various issues relating to mutual interests including the ways of boosting relations between the two countries in the areas of trade and business, development and refugee issues, the prime minister’s Press Secretary Ehsanul Karim said while briefing reporters after the meeting. The prime minister informed the German chancellor about the socioeconomic progress of the country in different areas particularly in gender parity, women empowerment and poverty reduction, the press secretary said. After the meeting, Bangladesh and Germany signed a memorandum of understanding on upgrading current machine readable passport system of Bangladesh and a joint declaration of intent on political exchange on counter terrorism.
