Bangladesh’s image increases for sheltering Rohingyas

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that the Bangladesh’s image has increased aboard for sheltering Rohingyas. The Prime Minister said this after landing at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in the city on Saturday morning. About Bangladesh’s stance to give shelter to Rohingyas, Hasina said had Bangladesh not taken this stance then it would not have been possible to draw the attention of the international community like this way. “Now everyone is sympathetic, everyone is extending their hands and everyone is coming forward to help the Rohingyas,” she said. The Prime Minister, however, thanked the Myanmar government for coming forward to start the discussion -- at least bowed down to the international pressure. “I think this is a special aspect, I think, there’s an international pressure (on them)…we’ll be able to solve the problem gradually through discussions.” Hasina also thanked the people of Bangladesh for giving their all-out support to the stance of the government for giving shelter to the Rohingya nationals. She returned home from London wrapping up her three-week visit to the United States and the United Kingdom. A VVIP flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines carrying the prime minister and her entourage members landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 9:25 am. Ministers, advisers to the prime minister, parliament members, the Chiefs of three services, senior leaders of Awami League and 14-party combine, eminent personalities, and high civil and military officials were present at the airport to receive the prime minister. Winding up her 16-day official visit to the USA, she left Washington, DC on October 2 for London on her way back home.
