(Dhaka)- Bangladesh has sought cooperation of the international community for the implementation of its National Strategy to address the issue of undocumented Myanmar nationals here.

Foreign Secretary M Shahidul Haque, now in Geneva, conveyed the request while briefing the international community on the Bangladesh National Strategy to address the issue of undocumented Myanmar nationals.

The Foreign Secretary is currently visiting Geneva to attend the 20th session of the Committee on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of their Families (CMW) in his capacity as an independent expert of the committee, said a Foreign Ministry media release Thursday.

He held bilateral meetings with Director General (DG) of International Labour Organization (ILO) Guy Ryder, DG of International Organization for Migration (IOM) Ambassador William Lacy Swing, DG of World Health Organization (WHO) Dr Margaret Chan and Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants Francoise Crepeau.

The Foreign Secretary also spoke at a preparatory meeting on the Global Expert Meeting on Migration in Post-2015 Development Agenda to be held in Dhaka on 28-29 April 2014, co-hosted by Bangladesh and Switzerland.

The committee on the Protection of the Rights of All migrant Workers and Members of their Families (CMW) is a UN Treaty Body of independent experts that monitors implementation of the 1990 International Convention on the protection of Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families.
