Honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will highlight the Rohingya crisis in her key speech at the 75th UN General Assembly (UNGA) on September 26 at 8 pm Bangladesh time.

The prime minister will especially focus on the ongoing legal procedures at the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and will also reiterate her five-point proposals.

Bangladesh by now would be raising the Rohingya issue for the fourth time in this global platform.

At the 72nd UNGA session on September 21, 2017, the Prime minister has made the following 5 point proposal:

– Myanmar must unconditionally stop the violence and the practice of ethnic cleansing in the Rakhine State immediately and forever.

– Secretary General of the United Nations should immediately send a Fact-Finding Mission to Myanmar.

– All civilians irrespective of religion and ethnicity must be protected in Myanmar. For that “safe zones” could be created inside Myanmar under UN supervision.

– Ensure sustainable return of all forcibly displaced Rohingyas in Bangladesh to their homes in Myanmar.

– The recommendations of Kofi Annan Commission Report must be immediately implemented unconditionally and in its entirety.
