Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday renewed her call to the global community to ensure the dignified repatriation of Rohingyas as they are posing a big security threat to Bangladesh as well as the region.
"We’ve sheltered them on humanitarian grounds but such a huge population can't be lodged for an indefinite period… I request the world community to assist us in dignified and peaceful repatriation of the Rohingyas," she said.
The Prime Minister made the call in her pre-recorded speech at the three-day 'IX Moscow Conference on International Security'.
She said Bangladesh has been hosting more than a 1.1 million Forcibly Displaced Myanmar Nationals- Rohingyas for about four years. "They’re posing a huge security threat to Bangladesh as well as the region," she added.
Hasina said it goes without saying that conflicts among states give rise to intrastate security problems.
