Qatar to help Bangladesh solve Rohingya issue 
Qatar has expressed its interest to help Bangladesh resolve the Rohingya refugee problem with Myanmar.

Qatari Prime Minister Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani expressed the interest in a letter to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Qatari Foreign Minister's Special Envoy Dr Mutlaq bin Majed Al Qahtani handed over the letter to Sheikh Hasina at her official Ganabhaban residence on Thursday evening.

PM's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting.

In the letter, he said, the Qatari prime minister invited his Bangladesh counterpart to visit the Gulf state.

Accepting the invitation, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that she would visit Qatar at a mutually convenient time.

During the meeting, the Qatari Foreign Minister's Special Envoy expressed concern over the Rohingya refugee crisis, saying, "We should work for a solution for lasting peace."

In response, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that Bangladesh has very good relations with Myanmar. "We share information and there have been high official-level visits," she said.

The premier apprised the Qatari Foreign Minister's Special Envoy that Bangladesh has already urged Myanmar to take back its nationals.

Referring to the signing of the CHT Peace Treaty during her tenure in 1997, the prime minister said that the insurgents that time surrendered their arms before her without involvement of others.

Sheikh Hasina also extended greetings to Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and Qatari Prime Minister Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani.

PM's Principal Secretary Dr Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury and PM's Military Secretary Major General Mia Mohammad Zainul Abedin were present.
