Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to be recognized for Bangladesh's leadership in tackling climate crisis

The US remains very focused on helping all concerned in finding a solution to the Rohingya crisis and restoring democracy in Myanmar, John Kerry, the US special presidential envoy for climate, said on Friday. 

He appreciated Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's leadership in demonstrating "extraordinary active generosity" which, he thinks, is very expensive for Bangladesh. 

Kerry made the remarks while responding to a question at a joint briefing at state guesthouse Padma after his meeting with Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen in Dhaka.

He said the global community needed to step up in demonstrating their responsibility.

Bangladesh is hosting over 1.1 million Rohingyas in Cox's Bazar and Bhashan Char and has sought US support for sustainable and dignified return of Rohingyas to Myanmar.

Kerry arrived in Dhaka on Friday morning to convey President Joe Biden's commitment to move forward "aggressively" to deal with the global climate crisis.

Foreign Minister Dr Momen and his wife Selina Momen received Kerry upon his arrival at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 11:30am. US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl Miller was also present there. 

Kerry, who arrived in Dhaka after wrapping up his four-day India visit, is scheduled to hand over the US president’s invitation to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in person to attend the Leaders Summit on Climate, to be held virtually on April 22-23.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will be recognized at the summit for Bangladesh's leadership of countries especially vulnerable to climate impacts.
