Bangladesh refuses US request to shelter some Afghans

The government of Bangladesh has turned down a request from the US to provide temporary shelter to some people from Afghanistan in the wake of the political developments there.

 

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.

Dr. Momen said that the request from the US came through diplomatic channels from Washington and Dhaka.

Earlier, the Foreign Minister had said that Bangladesh will welcome any government in Afghanistan formed by the people of the country.

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.

It had urged all stakeholders in Afghanistan to maintain peace and calm while ensuring safety and security of all, including foreign nationals.
