Bangladesh PM says expects no help from Trump on refugees fleeing Myanmar

However, Swaraj and Hasina did not discuss the "burning" issue of Rohingya refugees during their meeting, said a statement by the Ministry of External Affairs.

Mr. Kumar said the discussion between Ms. Swaraj and Ms. Hasina was "purely bilateral".

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has met Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in NY.

A Myanmar military response to insurgent attacks last month in the country's Rakhine state sent more than 410,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing to neighboring Bangladesh, escaping what the United Nations has branded as ethnic cleansing. It was a very short meeting.

Trump enquired about the economic progress of Bangladesh and Sheikh Hasina in reply said, "Doing well". "The issue of Rohingya did not come up during the meeting for discussion", he said.

The Bank of Japan holds its regular policy meeting on Thursday with many expecting no change in its monetary policy stance. The Labor Department said imports prices climbed by 0.6 percent in August after edging down by 0.1 percent in July.


The Myanmar government says about 400 people have been killed in the fighting. Most face travel restrictions and are denied citizenship in a country where many Buddhists regard them as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.

Hasina also said she wanted to see more global political pressure on Myanmar so that it allows the Rohingya to return to their homeland. The external affairs ministry spokesman said that since the Doklam issue was already settled, there was "no question of it coming up in discussions".

Myanmar national security adviser Thaung Tun told Reuters on Monday that Myanmar would ensure those who left their homes could return, but there was "a process we have to discuss". He also added that during the meeting between Swaraj and Tobgay, the two leaders discussed the ways to further strengthen the bilateral cooperation between the two countries on a number of projects. Bhutan welcomed the end of the standoff and hoped that both the countries would in future respect the boundaries and refrain from getting into any such disputes again, maintaining the peace and status quo at the tri-junction.
