Kurigram Correspondent: US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl R Miller has said that his country wants “voluntary, safe, dignified and sustainable” return of all Rohingyas to Myanmar’s Rakhine State. For this, they will continue to put pressure on Myanmar to create conditions.

He further said, “The pressure should be squarely on Myanmar.”

The US envoy made the remarks while distributing relief goods among marooned people at Natarkandi High School at Astamir Char under Chilmari upazila of the district on Saturday.

Ambassador Miller said Bangladesh has opened its heart and border to over a million people who have been persecuted and highly appreciated Bangladesh’s generosity in sheltering Rohingyas.
