Bangladesh and Myanmar signed a repatriation deal on November 23, 2017

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has requested that India, as a member of the United Nations Security Council, play a “strong role” in the early repatriation of the displaced Rohingyas to Myanmar.

Prime Minister Hasina and her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi recently reiterated the importance of the safe, speedy, and sustainable return of Rohingyas to their homeland for the greater security of the region.

India, which shares border with both Bangladesh and Myanmar, assured its continued support for repatriation, according to joint statement issued during Prime Minister Modi’s two-day state visit that ended on Saturday.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed appreciation for the generosity of Bangladesh in sheltering and providing humanitarian assistance to the 1.1 million forcibly displaced persons from the Rakhine State of Myanmar.

Bangladesh and Myanmar signed a repatriation deal on November 23, 2017. On January 16, 2018, Bangladesh and Myanmar signed a document on physical arrangement, which was supposed to facilitate the return of Rohingyas to their homeland.

Bangladesh says the Rohingyas do not trust the Myanmar government, and Bangladesh has given several proposals to build trust among them.

Bangladesh is trying bilaterally, multilaterally, tri-laterally and through the judicial system to find a lasting solution to the Rohingya crisis. The country has proposed the deployment of nonmilitary civilian observers from countries friendly to Myanmar, such as Japan, China, Russia, India and Asean countries.
