Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen is currently in Bangkok, Thailand to attend a high-level regional meeting on Rohingya refugees, which will take place on October 17.

Momen reached Bangkok today to join the closed-door meeting, an official told UNB.

The meeting will seek international support for over a million Rohingya refugees and their hosting communities -- most of them in Bangladesh -- in the lead up to the Global Refugee Forum (GRF) in Geneva, December 2023.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, is also visiting Thailand to attend the meeting.

As part of the visit, Grandi will be opening the high-level regional meeting on Rohingya refugees on October 17.

UK's Minister of State for Indo-Pacific and the US Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration are among the key delegates attending the high-level meeting, according to UNHCR.

Bangladesh is hosting over 1.1 million Rohingyas in Cox's bazar district and Bhasan Char.
