Rohingyas are fleeing their homes and spreading across different parts of the state to survive amid clashes between the army and the rebel group Arakan Army in Myanmar’s Rakhine.

In such a situation, the United Nations has requested Bangladesh to provide shelter to hundreds of Rohingyas who have reached the border areas of both the countries on humanitarian grounds.

However, Bangladesh has clearly stated that it is not possible to settle any new Rohingya.

According to official sources, such a discussion took place during the meeting of the National Task Force on Rohingya issues at the Ministry of External Affairs in Dhaka on Wednesday. The meeting, chaired by Foreign Secretary Masoud bin Momen, was attended by representatives of various government ministries and departments as well as various UN organizations.
