NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 20 – The UN High Commission for refugees Filippo Grandi will travel to Bangladesh to focus on the Rohingya refugee crisis which had many UN leaders define as ethnic cleansing. “I also hope to go to Myanmar as well”, Grandi said to OnuItalia, ahead of a trip aimed to tackle the arrival across the Burma border of over 400,00 people in the last three weeks.
While in New York for the high level meetings of the 72nd General Assembly, Grandi met with Bangladeshi Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, to help the country to help addressing the Rohingya refugee problem. Hasina, while in New York, said all the UN organisations would help Bangladesh, but the registration of the Rohingya refuges would be done by the Bangladesh Army. (@OnuItalia)
