Dhaka. Bangladesh has rejected the US request in which the US had asked Bangladesh to give refuge to Afghan citizens. Bangladesh Foreign Minister Abdul Momin has said that Bangladesh is already facing the problem of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar and in such a situation it cannot accept Afghan citizens as refugees. The US, through diplomatic liaison sources, had urged Bangladesh to give asylum to Afghan nationals. Bangladesh has already made it clear that it will support any government in Afghanistan that will be elected by the Afghan people.
On the other hand, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has called for the formation of a new, unified, and representative government in Afghanistan through inclusive consultations, in which women are fully dominated.
