The WFP Country Representative informed the Foreign Minister about his upcoming trip to Bhashan Char, and thanked the government for providing support to WFP staff with accommodation, transportation and other facilities there. 

            Dr. Momen took interest in Scalpelli’s previous experience of serving in Myanmar, and urged WFP and other UN agencies operating in Myanmar’s Rakhine State to help create an environment conducive to the safe, voluntary, dignified and sustainable repatriation of the Rohingya now sheltered in Bangladesh to Myanmar.
