Tripartite meeting for Rohingya repatriation from Bangladesh on January 19- Foreign Minister Dr. A K Abdul Momen

AIR PIC
A tripartite meeting between Bangladesh, Myanmar and China for the repatriation of Rohingya refugees will be held on January 19 in Dhaka. This was announced by the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh Dr. A K Adbul Momen in Dhaka on Wednesday.

The tripartite meeting will take place at the Secretary level. Dr. Momen said that he retains high hopes of a positive outcome of the meeting, reports the official news agency BSS. He informed that the meeting was scheduled to be held this week but it was deferred to January 19 as the Chinese foreign minister is scheduled to visit Myanmar in the meantime.

The first tripartite meeting among the foreign ministers of Bangladesh, China and Myanmar was held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York in 2019.

Dr. Momen said that Bangladesh has handed over the biometric data of more than 8.4 lakh Rohingya refugees currently taking shelter in the country to Myanmar.

Dr. Momen accused Myanmar of lack of sincerity and cooperation on the issue of repatriation of Rohingya refugees to their homeland.

Bangladesh and Myanmar had signed a repatriation deal in November 2017 followed by a physical agreement in January 2018 to facilitate the return of Rohingyas to the Rakhine province. However there has been no success in the repatriation of Rohingyas despite two failed attempts in the past.

Currently, more than a million Rohingya are living in refugee camps in Bangladesh after fleeing the military crackdown in the Rakhine province of Myanmar in August 2017.
