Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said Bangladesh continues its discussions with Myanmar with a friendly attitude for the repatriation of Rohingyas without engaging in any conflict for the sake of regional security and development.

"Responding to the call of endangered humanity, we’ve given shelter to around 10 lakh Rohingyas despite various limitations, including internal resource constraint. And we didn’t engage in conflict with anyone for the sake of regional security and development apart from creating scopes so that the forcibly displaced Myanmar citizens can return to their homeland,” she said.

The Prime Minister said this while addressing the graduation ceremony of the Defence Services Command and Staff College (DSCSC) 2020-21 Course at Sheikh Hasina Complex in Mirpur Cantonment in the city. She joined the programme virtually from her official residence Ganabhaban.
Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh is continuing the discussions with Myanmar so that they take back their citizens.

"We’re carrying out discussion with a friendly attitude, but we must say who’s doing injustice…they must take back their nationals and we want that," she said.
