Bangladesh charges Myanmar with violating its air space

The Bangladeshi Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday that it had summoned the charge d’affaires of Myanmar’s embassy in Dhaka to complain about a three-time infringement on its airspace in the course of the most recent week.

“Bangladesh strongly protested the instances of violation of airspace by Myanmar military drones and helicopter on 10, 12 and 14 September 2017,” the ministry said in a statement.

“Bangladesh expressed deep concern at the repetition of such acts of provocation and demanded that Myanmar takes immediate measures to ensure that such violation of sovereignty does not occur again,” it added.

Myanmar’s presidential spokesman reacted on Saturday that there was no proof of any trespassing, and that the issue was, be that as it may, being examined.

Ties between the two neighbours soured after Myanmar’s military propelled a fatal crackdown on the minority Rohingya people group in Rakhine State, driving a huge number of Muslims to escape to Bangladesh.

As per most recent assessments, around 391,000 Rohingya people have crossed into Bangladesh since the brutality emitted three weeks prior, making it one of the quickest developing outcast emergencies lately.

Since August 25, the Myanmar military has been assaulting Rohingya Muslims and burning their towns in Rakhine. The assaults have seen a sharp ascent since August 25, following various outfitted assaults on police and military posts in the harried western state.

There have been reports of deaths and ethnic cleansing by Myanmar’s soldiers on the Muslim populace in Rakhine.
