Myanmar used similar tactic in the past only to alleviate global pressure, a source says
 
Myanmar, who’s brutal military campaign in Rakhine state forced hundreds of thousands of Rohingya flee to Bangladesh, has finally proposed a meeting with Dhaka to find a solution to the Rohingya crisis that has drawn global attention and condemnation.
Thaung Tun, Myanmar’s national security adviser, made the proposal on Thursday during a meeting with Bangladesh Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali in New York.
Source said Myanmar had used similar move in the past in the face of mounting global pressure over its persecution of the Muslim minority.
Earlier, Naypyitaw took three months’ time for a bilateral meeting when violence erupted in Rakhine state on October last year. Thousands of Rohingya fled to Bangladesh after the army launched a security crackdown targeting the minority.
In January this year, Myanmar’s special envoy Kyaw Tin held talks with Bangladesh’s prime minister, foreign minister and foreign affairs secretary over Rohingya issue.
Dhaka had asked Naypyitaw to take back the Rohingya as the sudden influx placed extreme stress on the former.
The ongoing crackdown on Rohingya started after insurgents wielding guns, sticks and homemade bombs attacked 30 police posts and an army base in Rakhine and killed 12 security personnel on August 24 and 25.
A sweeping military response from Myanmar forced more than 422,000 Rohingya Muslims to escape to Bangladesh since then.
