Bangladesh Declines US Request to Shelter Some Afghan Refugees

The Bangladesh government has turned down the request from the United States to accommodate some Afghan refugees.

 

The Taliban captured Kabul on Sunday (August 15) and people are fleeing the country fearing persecution by the Taliban.

 

“Bangladesh Foreign Minister Dr. A K Abdul Momen told the UNB in Dhaka that Bangladesh received a request from the US which it rejected as it is already facing problems by giving shelter to the Rohingya refugees who came to the country from Myanmar”, reported DD News.

 

Bangladesh has given an indication that it would recognise the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

 

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) in a statement on Monday said that it considers Bangladesh as a potential development partner and a friend of Afghanistan. It stands ready to share its best practices with Afghanistan in a range of areas such as basic education, community healthcare, sanitation, human resources development, agriculture, climate change adaptation, disaster management and ICT-enabled public service delivery”, reported DD News.

 

It also appealed to the Afghans to maintain calm and peace.

 

Turkey is building a 295-km long wall on its border to check the influx of refugees. Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have already refused to accept any refugees.
