A ship of the country’s navy is coming to Cox’s Bazar to take back members of various organizations including the Myanmar Army, Border Guard Police (BGP), government officials who have taken refuge in Bangladesh. It will start its journey from Sitte, the capital of Rakhine, tomorrow, Saturday, if it gets Bangladesh’s permission.

Officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Dhaka and the Bangladesh Embassy in Yangon told Prothom Alo this information on Friday afternoon. Meanwhile, it is said that the relevant departments of Bangladesh will complete the process and give permission.

Diplomatic sources said the Myanmar Navy has dispatched one of its ships from Yangon to Sitt as fighting continues in Rakhine State with the insurgent group Arakan Army. Later from Sitte the ship will reach Inani beach in Cox’s Bazar. They will take back their citizens from there. However, at the moment, several ships of the Myanmar Navy are deployed in the Ashapasha area of Rakhine, including the port of Sitteh, as part of the fight with the Arakan Army.

Ambassador of Bangladesh on the phone from Yangon. Manowar Hossain told this reporter in the evening, “Myanmar has informed us of their readiness to send naval ships to us. The ship is said to be ready to sail to Bangladesh tomorrow, Saturday.

Meanwhile, government officials in Dhaka said that Myanmar has officially informed about the preparations to send the navy ship. Now on behalf of Bangladesh, the relevant ministries and departments will complete the necessary procedures in this regard and allow the ship to enter.

Incidentally, the fighting between the Arakan Army and the Myanmar Army in Rakhine has reached an extreme level. From last Sunday to Thursday, at least 330 citizens of the country have taken shelter in Bangladesh including various organizations including the Myanmar army, BGP and their family members.

Myanmar initially offered to take them back to Mangdu in Rakhine via the Naf River. But as the security situation in Rakhine worsened, Bangladesh offered an alternative to take them back by plane. The two countries agreed when Myanmar later offered to repatriate its nationals by sea instead of by air.
