Rohingya Repatriation: Dhaka wants Suu Kyi to join talks in Beijing



Bangladesh wants Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi to be present at a tripartite meeting in Beijing as proposed by China to discuss Rohingya repatriation issues.
“It won’t be done without her presence. She should be there,” Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen conveyed it to China.

Though Suu Kyi, the State Counsellor of Myanmar, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, she has been widely criticised for doing nothing to stop rape, murder and genocide in Rakhine by refusing to condemn the powerful military or acknowledge accounts of atrocities.

The Foreign Minister said the number one objective of Bangladesh is to see the repatriation of Rohingyas to their place of origin in Rakhine State.

Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Li Jiming proposed to hold a tripartite meeting among Foreign Ministers of the three countries– Bangladesh, Myanmar and China.

“We’re ready,” Dr Momen said, expressing Bangladesh’s readiness to hold such a meeting likely to be held in Beijing.

The first such meeting was held in New York, said the Foreign Minister.

Dr Momen said the Chinese Ambassador informed him that they will work out the plan for the next meeting and will talk to Beijing.

The Foreign Minister said India is also agreed on sustainable repatriation of Rohingyas to Myanmar.

During his meeting with Dr Momen on Sunday, the Chinese Ambassador expressed concern due to the delay in repatriation of Rohingyas to their place of origin in Rakhine State.
