Priyanka Chopra meets Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, calls on PM Hasina

Actor and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka Chopra today sought to draw the world's attention to the plight of Myanmar's Rohingya refugees, as she met Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and lauded the country for its response to the massive humanitarian crisis. 

Chopra, who arrived in Bangladesh on Monday on a four-day visit, also visited and met some of the displaced Rohingyas of Myanmar living in the refugee camps in Cox's Bazar, a town on the southeast coast of the country. 

"The world should learn from Bangladesh," a spokesperson from the prime minister's office quoted Chopra as saying during her meeting with Hasina. 

The prime minister's additional press secretary Nazrul Islam said the Bollywood star particularly praised Hasina for shouldering the burden of over a million "forcibly displaced" ethnic minority population of Myanmar during her courtesy visit at the premier's Gonobhaban residence this afternoon.
