Rohingya crisis is Myanmar’s internal problem imposed on Bangladesh, Bangladesh’s State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam told United Nations’ Security Council members today.

Debriefing the 15-member UN Security Council delegation at Ukhia, Cox’s Bazar, after the council’s official visit to Rohingya camps, the junior minister said “the solution to this problem lies in Myanmar”.“It is Myanmar’s internal conflict, forced on to the shoulder of Bangladesh. The problem has come from there and the solution lies there as well,” Shahriar Alam said in the briefing.

Prior to the briefing, the delegation visited Kutupalong refugee camp and Tombru border in Bandarban’s Naikhyangchhari to assess first-hand the plight of the refugees there.

Then, they were taken to a briefing room where the local administration of Cox’s Bazar and Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) debriefed them on the crisis Bangladesh has been handling since August last year.

So far, at least 700,000 Rohingya people have fled into Myanmar since violence escalated following a military crackdown in Rakhine state back in August last year.
