Bangladesh has called for coordinated efforts by the United Nations agencies to resolve the longstanding Rohingya crisis.

In meetings with UN officials, Bangladesh Foreign Minister Hasan Mahmud accused Myanmar of using its internal conflict as a pretext to delay repatriation of the persecuted Muslim group.

He said about 1.3 million Rohingya are living in Bangladesh who fled a brutal military crackdown in Myanmar in 2017.
