Christian Leaders meet Bangladesh Minister over Rohingya Crisis
Senior Christian religious leaders in Bangladesh and Myanmar and Caritas Internationalis (a confederation of Catholic relief, development and social service organizations operating in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide) called on Bangladesh Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan and wanted to know what they could do for the Rohingyas living in Cox’s Bazar camps. Emerging from a closed-door meeting at the secretariat on July 30, the Christian leaders said it was a courtesy call and they met the minister following their visits in Rohingya camps in Ukhia of Cox’s Bazar.
Asked about the visit and its outcome, minister Asaduzzaman said he urged the Christian delegations to mobilize global opinion to resolve the Rohingya crisis as was assured by Pope Francis during his visit in Dhaka in December 2017. Dhaka Archbishop Cardinal Patrick D’Rozario, Cardinal Luis Antonio Gokim Tagle, the president of Caritas Internationalis, Yangon Archbishop Cardinal Charles Maung Bo, the president of Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences, and Alvaro Izurieta Y Sea, the second secretary at the Vatican Embassy in Dhaka, met the minister.
