The European Union has announced to provide €96 million as humanitarian assistance for Rohingya refugees in 2020.

EU's Dhaka office disclose the information on Sunday.

The EU, along with the United States, the United Kingdom and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, co-hosted a conference on October 22 in solidarity with Rohingya refugees and countries in the region recently.

AT the conference, EU Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič said the international community came together to show its support and deliver further assistance to hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees and the communities hosting them.

"We must do all we can so the Rohingya crisis does not become a forgotten tragedy. At this difficult time, the EU continues to stand by the most vulnerable with this emergency humanitarian support," he said.
