Bangladesh’s vital role in extending humanitarian assistance to the estranged people of Myanmar in providing shelter was recognized in the 14th India-EU summit held in New Delhi on 6th October.
To enable the return of the displaced Rohingyas, India and the European Union(EU) have asked the Myanmar Gov’t to implement the Kofi Anan-led Rakhine Advisory Commission’s recommendations and to work with Bangladesh hand in hand to lessen and eradicate the sufferings of so many people.
The joint statement was issued after talks among Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President of the European Council Donald Tusk and President of the European Commission Jean Claude Juncker.
Both sides recognized the need for ending the violence and restoring normalcy in the Rakhine state without any delay.
More than 5,15,000 Rohingyas have so far taken refuge in neighbouring Bangladesh fleeing persecution in the Rakhine state of Myanmar carried out by its military forces since August 25.
