UN has Rohingya crisis under ‘constant monitoring’


PV International Desk : The United Nations is constantly monitoring the Rohingya refugees who have fled to Bangladesh to escape persecution in Myanmar, says its Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
The UN chief made the remarks at a meeting with Finance Minister AMA Muhith in New York on Monday, said a press release from the Bangladesh Permanent Mission to the UN.
“The UN is constantly monitoring the issue,” Guterres said. “We are amazed that a country with such a high population has taken in so many refugees and is providing them with humanitarian assistance.”
The UN secretary general also thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the people of Bangladesh for their humanitarian support.
Guterres also discussed several possible solutions to the crisis and assured Muhith his efforts to resolve the situation would continue unabated.
Hasina attended the 72nd United Nations General Assembly in New York in September and addressed world leaders on the Rohingya crisis.
