The Secretary told this while talking to the United Nations Security Council on Thursday.

Shahidul Haque said, I am very sad to inform the Security Council that Bangladesh is not in a position to provide shelter to any Rohingya refugees. Myanmar is just giving false assurances and backing down the repatriation showing many causes.

Foreign Secretary said, it was not possible to send a Rohingya back. Because there was not a safe environment for them.

British ambassador to the UN Karen Pearce said, "We are very disappointed that the situation of Rohingya's return has not yet been created.

UN envoy to Myanmar, Christine Scranton told the Security Council that the UN's access to Myanmar is limited. The Suppress over Rohingyas is one of the worst cases of this century.

At this time, the Security Council members put emphasize on the Rohingyas' voluntary and safe repatriation. However, the members of the Security Council, divided on how to deal with this crisis, Western countries have a position against Myanmar's allies Russia and China.

China's tribal ambassador Wu Haitao said that it is mainly the internal issue of Myanmar and Bangladesh. They should let them solve it. Russia's ambassador Dmitry Polyanskiy expressed his opinion supporting it.
