11 return from Yemen

The Indian High Commission in Dhaka has tweeted that the ship INS Sumitra has rescued those Bangladeshis from Al Hudaydah.

However, Bangladesh government did not give any figure, though of late it has sent its diplomats from Kuwait to Djibouti after getting India’s assurance for help.

The rescue operation has been coordinated from Djibouti, just on the other side of Gulf of Aden.

India’s junior external affairs minister VK Singh has coordinated the whole process from Djibouti.

India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has tweeted that “the evacuation operation is over. General V.K.Singh is returning tonight. We are closing our Embassy there”.

However, it is not clear whether any Bangladeshis remained stranded in Yemen.

The foreign ministry on Friday told bdnews24.com that they would issue a statement later in the evening.

Bangladesh does not have diplomatic mission in Yemen, but the foreign secretary said they estimated there might be between 1500 and 3000 nationals living in Yemen.

Later, the government estimated around 350 Bangladeshis are stuck in the capital Sana’a, currently controlled by Houthi rebels, who have ousted Yemen’s President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

The conflict in Yemen has turned the impoverished Arabian Peninsula state into the latest theatre for Sunni Saudi Arabia’s proxy war with its regional Shia rival Iran.

Bangladesh earlier endorsed its support to Saudi-led effort in Yemen.

Tehran, however, denies Riyadh's charges that it has been arming the Houthis.

Houthis have emerged as the country's most powerful faction when they took over the capital six months ago together with supporters of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

How much money did Modi get from Hasina by way of transit rights, water stealing, and free moving target practice for BSF?

I think Modi has enough money and doesn't need Hasina's chump change. It is in exchange she remains as a leader (of course I am speculating).

We should give credit where it is due though. They got 272 of our kind rescued.

They thought they evacuated 2 extra ... So killed two in beanpole on the same day:

"BSF opens fire at Jessore borders killing 2 Bangladesh nationals"

India taking all the transit benefits and Bangladesh is just happy with the words that they will allow Bangladesh to trade with Nepal Bhutan through India. But that's onlyin paper..while India is already transporting through multiple directions to the East. Yesterday saw a new shipping service from Kolkata to Ctg to ship goods to Eastern provinces.....

While there is non Progress on our front with NepalBhutan....I'm really astonished, how a Government can be so shameless to give so muche nd not take anything?...I mean are they Bangladeshi Government or Bangla speaking Indians?

Good to see that, you defend Hasina in a way that she is Indian PM not Bangladesh that's the whole point it's not your fault, she acts like that

Well it was Bangladesh PM's responsibility to ensure that all infrastructures and non infrastructural barriers are removed from Indian side...before giving India full access...if Hasina doesn't do that, may be our PM will do that

I dont care what "Even whatever country did"
erokom example na deyai bhalo, ekta jatigoto bajhe obbhas hoye gese.......even who did what.........uff.
The question is why have we taken this thing so lightly.
May be the situation is not as bad as media portrays, so whatever ships are around are getting who want to get out.
However,
I heard a BD navy ship from Lebanon was on its way but it will take 12 days since it has to cruise south along the entire africa and then come north again.

I guess you have comprehension probs bro? Am I the commerce minister? That you are repeatedly saying that it's my short coming?

Who do I blame other than my PM and Commerce minister? Should I blame Indian PM? Or Hasina is Indian PM?

It's really funny that how you are chucking such meaningless words defending my own PM and blaming me huh

What's the short coming? ঝেড়ে কাশুন না দাদা
Nepal is waiting for pretty long time to use the Mongla port, but all attempts failed because India didn't allow access through Indian territory. So what, whom & how are you defending my own PM, I just don't understand.....what's the point...??

BANFAN, why are you conflating issues?

India rescued 272 Bangladesh nationals (along with others) from Yemen. This is praiseworthy.

There is no evidence of the Bangladeshi government "selling out to India" (as people of your ilk so often claim). If and when there is evidence of this, bring it up. Everything else is just petty, mindless conjecture.

You have a problem with Sheikh Hasina? Fine. How about you open another thread in which to brand her as an Indian stooge?

Some people seriously have warped minds.

I'm replying to a post, why do you get hurt at the comments from people like us? Truth hurts?
I don't think I have said India has done a bad thing

We should set higher standards for praise. As Malcolm X said...if you stab me with a 6 inch knife and then withdraw the blade 1 inch, thats not "progress".

I think that's a false analogy. Are you saying that India knowingly put 1800 Bangladeshi in the crosshairs of rival Yemeni factions (equivalent to being stabbed with a six inch knife) and then evacuated 272 individuals (equivalent to withdrawing the blade by an inch)? If not, you are conflating issues.

Helping us get our people out of Yemen was a good thing worthy of thanks. It doesn't mean that India is generally worthy of admiration, only that this particular action was praiseworthy. We certainly have a whole host of legitimate gripes about India, but those are entirely separate issues.

'you' here is not banfan but the average bangladeshi businessman.

all along we heard that BD is not progressing because India doesn't allow land access to nepal and bhutan. now that that access has been provided, thanks to Sk Hasina diplomatic initiative, people are crying that BD is not able to take advantage of it.

so first you demand something, then you blame the person who fulfills that demand.

You are twisting the facts. Having an agreement and not getting the physical facilities are two different issues. I have given only one example; it's a government to government dealing that Nepal imports through Mongla and transports through Inida. We got those words in the revised contract after India enjoyed transit through Bangladesh for 5+ years. Now while Bangladesh isn't pressing for the infrastructure and other barriers to actually start the thing with Nepal, they are opening up services for India through CTG port and providing all the support...so definitely Hasina deserves a criticism for uneven dealings. Well I know you would love that and praise her...but I won't. Average business man will exploit the facility when all the arrangements are completed for physical activity. I don't know if you understand what are all the arrangements necessary...

Your tone is pretty undermining the ability of Bangladeshi business people, that they aren't capable to exploit it...or may be meaning we are a sick economy and have nothing to offer...If that's not the case actually you need to clarify why and how you can blame it on business people and not on the Government?

There is 0 facility to carryout the business at this moment from Bangladesh through India to Nepal/Bhutan...well you may be ecstatic that gift has put the clause in the contract after 5+ years of unilateral transit...I'm not...and on top of that, Govt isn't active to press the Indian side to remove barriers to start the shipment to Nepal through India...so ya...it's pretty sad & incompetence of our government....for you that may be advantageous, but it's better that you don't defend my government's incompetence, that's a disservice ... It's funny that you try to pass it on to our business community with a hint on their incompetence. That's pretty objectionable...

I know and I admire our business community, because they have achieved a lot under pretty hostile business environment & lack of government support (All Regime)
