Hasina accuses Myanmar of committing atrocities on Rohingyas

| | Dhaka:

: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today accused Buddhist-majority Myanmar of committing atrocities on Rohingya Muslims, saying Dhaka will not tolerate any kind of injustice and its protest will continue.

She also asked Myanmar to ‘take steps’ to take back its nationals who have fled to Bangladesh following the violence.

“We want peace and a friendly relation with neighbouring countries...(but) we cannot allow and accept any kind of unjust and our protest will continue to this end,” Hasina said after visiting a Rohingya refugee camp near the border town of Ukhiya in Cox’s Bazar district.

She assured the refugees that Bangladesh would continue to provide humanitarian assistance to them.

“As long as they don’t return to their country we will remain beside them,” she said.
