Trudeau hails PM for dealing with Rohingya crisis


 LONDON, April 19, 2018 (BSS) – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau here today highly appreciated Bangladesh Premier Sheikh Hasina for her outstanding leadership in handling the protracted Rohingya crisis.

“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been showing outstanding leadership in handling the Rohingya refugees. The Commonwealth leaders must support her,” he said while addressing the first Executive Session of the 25th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) that began here today.

PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said after the presentation of the Commonwealth secretary general’s report, British Premier Theresa May opened the floor for intervention.

Taking the floor, he said, Justin Trudeau made this appreciation.

More than one million forcibly displaced Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh following an army crackdown in Buddhist-majority Myanmar’s northwestern Rakhine State.
