Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has requested Egypt to continue providing required support to The Gambia over the Rohingya issue at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) as a leading OIC member country.
Mr Momen made the request when outgoing Ambassador of Egypt Walid Ahmed Shamseldin met him on Sunday.
Shamseldin assured the Foreign Minister of their continued support over Rohingya repatriation.
The government of Myanmar should immediately comply with the ICJ orders to prevent the ongoing acts of genocide and preserve evidence of genocide against Rohingya Muslims, said Fortify Rights.
Matthew Smith, Chief Executive Officer at Fortify Rights, termed it another step towards justice for Rohingya. “International accountability mechanisms, like the ICJ, are crucial, especially given that mass atrocity crimes continue against Rohingya and others in Myanmar.”
Both discussed bilateral trade and investment issues, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Momen said Egypt would be able to employ Bangladeshis skilled in information technology. He also emphasized on enhancing bilateral trade cooperation between Bangladesh and Egypt and harnessing the potential of the two countries in this regard.
