DHAKA: Bangladesh on Thursday welcomed a consensus on a UN resolution related to the repatriation to Myanmar of the 1.2 million Rohingya refugees it has sheltered for the past six years.

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslim refugees who fled a military crackdown in Myanmar in 2017 have sought shelter in neighboring Bangladesh.

They joined others who escaped persecution earlier and settled in squalid camps in Cox’s Bazar district, a coastal region in the country’s southeast that hosts the world’s largest refugee settlement.
