British High Commissioner to Bangladesh Robert Chatterton Dickson has said Rohingyas are not only for Bangladesh but also poses a threat to global security.

‘Rohingya crisis is one of the world’s major problems and the international community should work together to repatriate them safely,’ British High Commissioner made the comments while briefing media at a hotel in the southern city Barishal on Friday.

Rohingya issues have been discussed at the United Nations Security Council, Robert Chatterton Dickson also confirmed.

Speaking of politics in Bangladesh, Dickson said the Bangladesh government should give more space to opposition parties to express their views for the sake of democracy.

He added that the mass media should also be allowed to exercise their freedom.

Earlier, British High Commissioner Robert Chatterton Dickson visited different places in Barishal during his two-day visit.
