UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, on Wednesday mentioned that it will continue services in various places around the country indicating the inclusion of Bhashan Char.
“The government has made a very important investment in Bhashan Char. Bhashan Char is a much better (place than Cox’s Bazar camps),” Raouf Mazou, UNHCR assistant high commissioner for operations, told reporters after their meeting with Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen.
He said they are with the government of Bangladesh and they always work with the government. “We’re present in Cox’s Bazar. We’ll continue to be present in various places around the country and will work with the government to ensure assistance to refugees.”
Raouf said anybody may feel isolated in Bhasan Char but they must have economic activities apart from education and healthcare facilities.
Gillian Triggs, the assistant high commissioner for protection, said they are here to work and support the government in ensuring the protection of these Rohingyas
