Bangladesh has no position on Su Kyi's freedom issue: FM

Bangladesh neither condemns the military rule in Myanmar nor it demands the release of Aung San Su Kyi, who has been detained by the military since Drifay’s coup.

Explaining the reasons, Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Wednesday told the FE that Bangladesh needs to consider a lot of things.

“Many countries condemned the coup in a similar fashion they condemned the brutality against Rohingya by Myanmar military. But at the end of the day it is us, not they, who have to take the huge burden of the one million Rohingya refugees,” he added.

The minister said that as Myanmar is a neighbour to Bangladesh, it wants to see peace and stability in that country.

“We are ardent supporters of democracy and we want restoration of democracy in Myanmar,” he added.

Responding to a question he said there is no possibility of Rohingya influx now as Bangladesh is not ready to accept any more Rohingya.
