Dhaka, July 8 (IBNS): Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday criticized US congressman for his proposal to attach Myanmar’s Rakhine State with her nation to end the Rohingya crisis, media reports said.

Sherman also called upon the State Department to consider the proposal of bringing Rakhine state of Myanmar under Bangladesh, the economic times reports quoting the US media report, reported the Bangladesh-based news paper.

During her visit to the neighbouring nation, Hasina attended the annual meeting of World Economic Forum (WEF) in Dalian on July 2.

She held bilateral talks with Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang and even meet Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing during her visit.

Bangladesh and Rohingya trouble:

Almost a million Rohingya are currently living in Cox’s Bazar after escaping violence in Myanmar. In August 2017, some 500,000 people fled across the border in just a few weeks. Most Rohingya live in and around Cox’s Bazar, which has become the largest refugee settlement in the world – a desperately overcrowded environment prone to landslides and flooding.
