Paris (UNA-OIC) – Bangladesh has requested France, as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, to take the Rohingya issue to the council, Foreign Minister Dr. AK Abdul Momen said.
The request was made during Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s talks with the top French leaders, Momen said while briefing reporters here on Wednesday.
France has assured that they would remain beside Bangladesh until the permanent solution of the Rohingya crisis, National News Agency of Bangladesh (BSS) reported.
“We will seriously remain beside you (Bangladesh) until the crisis (Rohingya) reaches a permanent solution,” Momen quoted the French side as telling Sheikh Hasina during her talks with high-profile leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron and French Prime Minister Jean Castex.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is in Paris for a five-day state visit to France at an invitation from President Macron.
