Open your doors to Rohingya Muslims, we’ll bear their expenses: Turkey tells Bangladesh

Turkey’s foreign minister has urged Bangladesh to open its doors for Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in Myanmar’s western Rakhine state and offered to bear their expenses.

Mevlut Cavusoglu was speaking at an event held on Friday in connection with Eidul Azha in the Mediterranean province of Antalya, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

Cavusoglu said if Bangladesh opened its doors for Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar, Turkey was ready to cover their expenses.

“We have also mobilised the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation. We will hold a summit on Arakan [Rakhine state] this year. We need to find a decisive solution to this problem,” he added.
