The surge in the exodus of Rohingyas will affect Myanmar’s dignity, Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said and asked the international community to mount pressure on the neighbouring country to deescalate the violence.
Hasina’s remarks came a day after Bangladesh asked the United Nations to intervene to send back Rohingya refugees to Myanmar.
“It affects a country’s dignity when tens of thousands of its own national are fleeing home to take refuge outside,” Hasina said during a meeting of her ruling Awami League’s
policy making central working committee.
Hasina earlier told visiting Turkish first lady Emine Erdogan and foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu that Bangladesh sheltered the Rohingyas “completely on humanitarian ground”.
