Rohingya people, who have taken shelter in Bangladesh, have been given an idea about the facilities they will get if they return to Myanmar.
Alternative Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Rafiqul Alam disclosed this at the weekly press briefing on Sunday.
Currently, he said a tripartite initiative of Bangladesh-Myanmar-China is underway for voluntary, safe and sustainable repatriation of Rohingyas.
“Bangladesh is observing the ongoing situation in Myanmar. Rohingya repatriation is expected to begin soon when the situation improves in Myanmar,” said the foreign ministry's alternative spokesperson.
Rafiqul Alam said Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen will lead the Bangladesh delegation at the UN Peacekeeping Ministerial which will be hosted by Ghana in its capital Accra on December 5-6 December.
By participating in the ministerial-level meeting, the Bangladesh delegation will highlight Dhaka' position on the protection and security of peacekeepers, he said.
The alternative spokesperson said the Bangladesh delegation will also put emphasis on strategic communication to deal with their security risks, mental well-being of peacekeepers, increasing participation of women in peacekeeping operations and protection of civilians
