Golam Masih urged about 60 ambassadors from different countries to Riyadh, in a briefing initiated by Bangladesh Embassy in Riyadh, held at the local Radisson Hotel on Tuesday.
This information is given by the Bangladesh Embassy in Riyadh on Wednesday.
In his message, Ambassador Golam Masih said “Bangladesh has provided shelter to nearly 1.2 million Rohingya people, shelter and three-meal meals were arranged for them in the vast area of Cox's Bazar. Showing humanity, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina provided them shelter in Bangladesh. But giving shelter and other food related helps to 1.2 million Rohingyas in a populated country like Bangladesh, is a matter of great challenge.”
He said “Despite repatriation contract on behalf of Myanmar, it is not possible to send the group to their respective lands due to Myanmar’s delay.”
The ambassador said “Already, resolutions have been received at to the UN General Assembly and the Human Rights Commission adopted in relation to the Rohingya problem. The issue has been discussed many times in the UN Security Council. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina recently sought the international community's cooperation at the OIC summit.
Golam Masih urged the international community to implement the 5-point proposal of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to solve the Rohingya crisis.
He said that Myanmar is spreading propaganda that Bangladesh is non-cooperative to send Rohingyas back, which is not right in any way.
Ambassador Golam Masih urged the international community to immediately pressurize Myanmar to bring back Rohingya nationals to their homeland. And sought diplomats’ cooperation in this regard. He also conveyed his sincere thanks to Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz and Prince Mohammed bin Salman for overall cooperation.
It is to be noted that seven lakh Rohingyas took refuge in Bangladesh two years ago due to torture in Myanmar. Earlier, there are more than four lakh Rohingyas have come to the country.
The United Nations Refugee Resident Representative Khaled Khalifa also spoke on the occasion. He urged Rohingyas return to Myanmar quickly. Ambassadors present at the ceremony welcomed the initiative of Bangladesh. They assured for the cooperation in this regard.
