Rabab Fatima, Permanent Representative and Ambassador of Bangladesh to the United Nations, said that Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina opened the border of Bangladesh for displaced Rohingyas in 2017 on humanitarian grounds. But it is regrettable that Myanmar's failure to create an environment conducive to the self-motivated, safe and sustainable return of the Rohingya has led to long-term problems in Bangladesh.
This UN resolution is a unique example of regional and international solidarity towards Rohingya Muslims. However, it is of great concern that the situation in Myanmar continues to deteriorate. As a result, the return of Rohingyas is delayed.
