Turkish Foreign Minister to visit Dhaka amid Rohingya crisis
Poriborton Desk 7:38 pm, September 05, 2017
Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu will visit Bangladesh on September 6 amid the ongoing tragedy of tens of thousands Rohingya Muslims forced to flee the violence in Myanmar. Çavuşoğlu will visit camps where fleeing Rohingya are being sheltered in Bangladeshi territories.
Çavuşoğlu spoke with his Bangladeshi counterpart, Abul Hassan Mahmud Ali, over the phone late Sept. 4 in a bid to find a solution to the ongoing tragedy of tens of thousands Rohingya escaping the bloodshed.
Çavuşoğlu’s talk with Ali came as part of Turkey’s week-long efforts to find a safe haven for fleeing Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh, with the Turkish government offering to provide financial assistance to the Bangladeshi government. The two ministers discussed the situation of the Rohingya Muslims, as around 100,000 of them have crossed into Bangladesh.
Erdoğan had launched a massive diplomatic campaign to draw attention to the continued violence on the Rohingya Muslims. He held phone conversations with more than 20 world leaders so far, including U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
