The Netherlands has written a letter to Dhaka, assuring its strong commitment to the accountability of Myanmar which is accused of genocide against the Rohingya at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
Dutch Ambassador to Bangladesh Harry Verweij handed over the letter written by Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok to Bangladesh Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen during a call on him at the state guesthouse Padma in Dhaka yesterday.
It comes just four days before The Gambia is scheduled to submit its full submission of memorial on the Rohingya genocide case to the ICJ, top UN court headquartered at The Hague.
The case was filed against Myanmar's treatment of Rohingyas, including mass killings, rapes, destruction of their homes that forced some 750,000 Rohingyas to flee to Bangladesh in 2017.
During the call, Harry Verweij also assured Bangladesh Foreign Minister of continuing humanitarian assistance for some one million Rohingyas living in the camps in Cox's Bazar.
AK Abdul Momen said Bangladesh is focusing on the safe and sustainable repatriation of the Rohingyas.
