Ambassador Belal, while thanking the Diplomat Magazine for their cover story on Prime Minister’s unique face dedicated to humanity, highlighted to the audience how the world came to know Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as the ‘Mother of Humanity’ after her bold decision to open Bangladesh-Myanmar borders for the fleeing persecuted Rohingya people from Myanmar’s Rakhine State and thereby saving thousands of lives.

The Ambassador also explained how Bangladesh government has been extending all sorts of humanitarian assistance including shelter, food, healthcare, water and sanitation, etc. to the persecuted Rohingya people solely on humanitarian ground despite numerous challenges to the economy, ecology and security of Bangladesh.

He urged the international community to come forward to facilitate early repatriation of the displaced Myanmar residents to their homeland in Rakhine with safety, dignity and basic rights in a time-bound manner.

The ambassador also called upon the international community to eliminate the culture of impunity for the sake of a durable solution to the protracted Rohingya problem.
