Road Transport and Bridges Minister and Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today said Bangladesh wants United Nations involvement in discussion with Myanmar for repatriation of the Rohingyas.

"We don't want to sit with Myanmar bilaterally to return its forcibly displaced people. Rather, we want UN involvement in ending the crisis," he said after collecting relief goods and cash money for Rohingya people from different organizations and individuals in front of a hotel in Cox's Bazar.

Quader added that the regional and international sanction could force Myanmar to solve the Rohingya crisis.

AL Organizing Secretary Enamul Haque Shamim, Relief and Social Welfare Secretary Sujit Roy Nandi, AL Relief Sub Committee Chairman AFM Fakhrul Islam Munsi, lawmakers Saimum Sarwar Kamol and Asheq Ullah, Chittagong Development Authority Chairman Abdus Salam, Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Ali Hossain, AL district unit President Sirajul Mostafa and General Secretary Mujibur Rahman, among others, were present at the function.
