Bangladesh has sought a clear roadmap from the United Nations for repatriation of Rohingyas to Myanmar. 

“We provided shelter to the Rohingyas out of humanitarian consideration; however, the solution to the crisis lies in their safe and sustainable repatriation to Myanmar, which couldn’t even be commenced in last four years. Now the UN needs to provide us with a clear roadmap in this regard," said Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen.

He made the call at a bilateral meeting with Christine S. Burgener, the Special Envoy of the Secretary General on Myanmar at the Bangladesh Permanent Mission in New York on Wednesday.
