B’desh accuses Myanmar of airspace breach
Cox’s Bazar: Bangladeshi authorities summoned Myanmar’s envoy to protest what they said were violations of their airspace, even as the government promised to build 14,000 new shelters to house the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslim refugees camping on roadsides.
The foreign ministry said Myanmar drones and helicopters flew into Bangladeshi airspace on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday and warned that the “provocative acts” could lead to consequences. Myanmar’s presidential spokesman Zaw Htay claimed there was no proof of any trespassing and said, “We don’t know if they released that statement for political reasons.”
