Diplomats of various countries stationed in Dhaka have praised Bangladesh’s ‘extreme patience’ for peacefully handling the tense situation on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border by ‘not stepping on Myanmar’s provocation’.

Acting Foreign Secretary Admiral (retd) Khurshed Alam told reporters after a briefing on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border situation at Rashtriya Guest House Padma on Wednesday, “They have assured us that their respective countries will support Bangladesh on this issue at the United Nations.” .’

During the briefing, Dhaka urged the diplomats to take action so that no more mortar shells or bullets come from Myanmar.

Mentioning that Bangladesh will not step into the trap of Myanmar’s provocation, he further said, “We have told them that Myanmar is destabilizing the entire region and cannot be allowed to create obstacles in the repatriation of Rohingyas.”

The ongoing conflict between the Myanmar Army and the Arakan Army is causing panic on the Bangladesh border. Last Friday, one Rohingya was killed and five others were injured in a shelling in no-man’s land.

On the same day, a Bangladeshi youth, Anganthing Tongchinga, was seriously injured in a landmine explosion on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border in Naikxyongchari upazila of Bandarban district.

Alam said, they called on the diplomats to take action so that Myanmar’s internal conflict does not create any kind of pressure on Bangladeshis.

The envoys listened attentively to Bangladesh’s concerns and assured that they would inform their respective countries in due course.

In response to a question, Alam said, Myanmar has always maintained the same claim that the shells hitting Bangladesh were fired by the Arakan Army and ARSA, Myanmar’s internal rebel groups.

On Monday, the Acting Foreign Secretary gave the same briefing to the Heads of Mission of ASEAN countries in Dhaka about the border situation between Bangladesh and Myanmar.

Earlier on Sunday, Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) and Bangladesh Coast Guard were put on high alert along the Bangladesh-Myanmar border.

On that day, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned Myanmar’s ambassador to Dhaka, Aung Kyaw Moe, for the fourth time in a month to hand over Dhaka’s letter of protest over the incident.
