Syed Muazzem Ali, the High Commissioner Bangladesh
Darjeeling: The Bangladesh High Commissioner stated that India and Bangladesh should jointly pressurise Myanmar to take back Rohingyas from Bangladesh.

Talking to media persons in Darjeeling, Syed Muazzem Ali, the High Commissioner stated: "The Rohingya issue is an internal issue of Myanmar. The Rohingyas have been residents of Myanmar since generations but the Myanmar Government has not given them citizenship, instead they have pushed the Rohingyas into Bangladesh." At present, there are 11 lakh Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

"The Rohingya issue could give rise to security problems. The more the Rohingyas stay outside Myanmar, the greater the chances of radicalisation. The faster they return to Myanmar, the better it is," feels the High Commissioner.

The High Commissioner arrived in Darjeeling on Tuesday on a three-day visit. He further stated that the Home Minister of India will be visiting Bangladesh for a meeting with his counterpart on July 15.

"The present Bangladesh Government has a Zero Tolerance policy towards all acts of terrorism. There are strict mechanisms in place to prevent any such act. Every two years, the Home Ministers of the two countries meet to review full time security of the 4000 km border. Issues including cross border terrorism, human trafficking, smuggling, counterfeit currency are discussed in the meetings," added Syed Muazzem Ali.

Similar meetings are also held between the Border Security Force of India and Border Guards Bangladesh at regular intervals.Bangladesh is all set to emerge as a key player for India's Look East Act East policy feels the High Commissioner.
