03/03/2014: PM urges Myanmar for amicable solution of refugee issue

PM urges Myanmar for amicable solution of refugee issue
NAY PYI TAW, March 3, 2014 (BSS) - Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today called the Myanmar government for an "amicable solution" to bring back the Myanmar refugees from Bangladesh.

She came up with the request during her bilateral talks with Myanmar President Thein Sein at the Presidential Palace here this afternoon.

Sheikh Hasina is here on a two-day official visit to attend the third BIMSTEC Summit.

After the meeting, PM's Special Assistant Mahbubul Hoque Shakil briefed reporters.

At the talks, he said, the two leaders laid importance on peace and stability of this region.

The Prime Minister reiterated that her government's "zero tolerance" policy against terrorism would continue. "Bangladesh's soil would never be used for terrorist activities against any friend or country," she asserted.

Mentioning Myanmar as 'close neighbour', Sheikh Hasina vowed to work together for changing the fate of the peoples of this region.

She described poverty as the "main and common enemy" for this region and stressed the need for inter-state connectivity for the development of the people of the region.

"The countries of this region will be strengthened economically further and mutual trade and business will be boosted through regional connectivity," she said, adding the people would ultimately benefit from it.

The Prime Minister said the Bangladeshi entrepreneurs are interested to invest in Myanmar, particularly in agro-processing industries.

Lauding the dynamic leadership of the Myanmar President, Sheikh Hasina said Myanmar is witnessing rapid development under his leadership.

The Prime Minister invited the Myanmar president to visit Bangladesh. He accepted the invitation and said he would visit Bangladesh at a convenient time.

The two leaders put emphasis on boosting bilateral trade.

In this connection, Thein Sein said India, Thailand and Myanmar have taken an initiative for establishing road connectivity. "Bangladesh could become a partner of this initiative," he mentioned.

The Prime Minister said the connectivity of this region would be raised to a great extent with the introduction of the Bangladesh-Myanmar-Kunming (China) road. "It will also boost mutual trade and business," she said.

State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam, Ambassador- at-Large M Ziauddin, Secretary of the Prime Minister's Office M Abul Kalam Azad, Foreign Secretary Shahidul Haque and PM's Special Assistant Mahbubul Hoque Shakil were present at the meeting.
