S Korea to provide $1.5 mn for Rohingyas in Bangladesh
South Korea has pledged humanitarian aid of USD 1.5 million for emergency relief operation for the Rohingya people who have crossed into Bangladesh amid persecution in Myanmar.
In response to the recent influx, on behalf of the Korean government, Ahn Seong-doo, Ambassador of South Korea to Bangladesh, has announced that the donation will be given through International Organization for Migration (IOM).
Ambassador Ahn said, “I hope this assistance would contribute to lessening the suffering of refugees who recently fled in the wake of the latest violence in the Rakhine state and improving their living conditions.”
The Republic of Korea has expressed deep concerns over the latest violence in the Rahkine state and the ensuing influx of refugees into Bangladesh.
It has also made clear its support for all the international efforts, including Bangladesh’s, to help the refugees.
The South Korea will continue to closely cooperate with the international community, including Bangladesh and the Myanmar government, to solve this issue, according to Korean Embassy in Dhaka.
