Expressing concern over the Rohingya crisis, visiting UK prime minister’s trade envoy Rushanara Ali, MP, stressed the need for mounting international pressure on Myanmar army to solve the problem.
‘Though Myanmar is a democratic country its army has control over the government. Defence, border are fully under their control, so it is needed to create pressure on them to resolve the issue,’ said Rushanara Ali while talking at a press briefing at a hotel in Dhaka on Thursday night.
‘The global community expressed sympathy to Bangladesh for sheltering
Rohingyas in Bangladesh,’ she said.
Terming the Myanmar crisis as ‘man-made’ disaster she urged the media people to be vocal to prevent the ongoing crisis centring Rohingyas.
Replying to a question over shifting the British visa centre from Bangladesh, Rushanara said, ‘The visa centre is being shifted as part of the state policy and it will have no impact on visa issuance. There is no other reason behind it.’
