The Hindu - - NEWS - Kal­lol Bhat­tacher­jee

Bangladesh wants In­dia, China and the ASEAN to mon­i­tor the prom­ise of safety by Myan­mar to en­sure pro­tec­tion of the Ro­hingya com­mu­nity, a Bangladesh source said on Sun­day, re­flect­ing the new of­fi­cial po­si­tion that Dhaka has adopted.

The For­eign Min­is­ter of Bangladesh, Dr. A.K. Ab­dul Momen, had in­formed the In­dian lead­er­ship about the new stance of Dhaka dur­ing his visit last week. “The Min­is­ter had asked for a safe haven for the Ro­hingya in Myan­mar that should be watched by the ASEAN, In­dia and China,” said the diplo­matic source.

Dr. Momen had men­tioned the plan for safe haven for the Ro­hingya in Myan­mar for the first time in Jan­uary af­ter he was sworn in as the For­eign Min­is­ter. The Hindu was in­formed that he shared this idea with both Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs Min­is­ter Sushma Swaraj and Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi.
