China wants early repatriation of the Rohingyas from Bangladesh to their place of origin and the violence in Rakhine state to end.
Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Li Jiming said this during Diplomatic Correspondents Association, Bangladesh (DCAB) Talk at the Jatiya Press Club today, reports UNB.
"Bangladesh and Myanmar are the main players on Rohingya issue, not China, but China is helping the two countries find a solution," he added.
Referring to a tripartite approach over Rohingya repatriation, he hoped there will be some "productive" and "substantial" progress going beyond "lip services".
He said Bangladesh and Myanmar are both good friends of China, and his country wants more dialogue and negotiations between the two countries.
Ambassador Jiming compared the situation between Bangladesh and Myanmar to kind of domestic conflict saying if the couple goes to a third party, the problem remains unsolved.
He did not want to make any comment on the ruling of the International Court of Justice, the top UN court, that ordered some provisional measures on Myanmar recently.
The Chinese Ambassador said this year marks the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Bangladesh and China.
