Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday urged China to persuade Myanmar so that they take back their over one million Rohingya nationals from Bangladesh.
The Prime Minister made the plea when Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Zhang Zuo met her at her Sangsad Bhaban office.
PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting.
He said the Prime Minister expressed again her firm stance over the Rohingya issue saying that the displaced people have to go back to their homeland.
The Chinese Ambassador said China will play a constructive role in resolving the Rohingya issue.
Meanwhile, Beijing has invited Prime Minister Hasina to pay an official visit to China from July 1-5.
The Chinese government also invited the Prime Minister to attend the annual meeting of the “New Champions” which is known as “Summer Davos” to be held in Dalian on July 1-3.
It will be Sheikh Hasina’s first bilateral visit to Beijing following her party’s overwhelming victory in the last parliamentary elections.
She will have meetings with President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Li Keqiang during the crucial visit.unb
