Burma Times Desk Report: April 29, 2015
In a seminar held in the Bangladesh capital of Dhaka, Sweden urged a solution to the Rohingya crisis within Burma.
“This is one of the tragic and unresolved problems,” Swedish Ambassador in Dhaka Johan Frisell said while speaking on his country’s foreign policy on Monday.
He said that if conditions were improved, not only would Rohingya Muslims stop leaving their homeland but many in Bangladesh could be repatriated easing the resource strained country’s burden.
He did not see a solution through third country settlement.
Friseel also urged Bangladesh to recognise the Rohingyas in their country as refugees.
Incidentally Sweden has been one of the greatest supporters of the Rohingya cause.
