Bangladesh has welcomed the judgment delivered by the UN's top court on the preliminary objections of Myanmar concerning the application or admissibility of the Genocide Convention in the case between the Gambia and Myanmar.
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) judgment rejected all four preliminary objections of Myanmar on legal and procedural grounds, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) said Friday.
"Bangladesh maintains that the question of international justice and accountability will be critical in finding a durable solution to the Rohingya crisis."
It would also prove to be a confidence-building measure for the sustainable repatriation of the Rohingya to their homes in Myanmar with their legitimate rights restored, MoFA said.
