China not protecting Myanmar, says envoy

Rohingya issues
DIPLOMATIC CORRESPONDENT, Dhaka
China not protecting Myanmar, says envoy

Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Li Jiming yesterday said his country is not trying to protect Myanmar over the Rohingya issues as his country has friendly relations with both Bangladesh and Myanmar.

Responding to a question at the DCAB Talk, organised by Diplomatic Correspondents Association, Bangladesh (DCAB) at the National Press Club in the capital, Li Jiming said China wants an end to the crisis through dialogue with the intervention of China and international bodies.

The ambassador said “It is often said that China is protecting Myanmar on the Rohingya issue. We have friendly relations with Bangladesh and Myanmar. We are not trying to protect Myanmar. We are trying to persuade all to settle the issue through dialogue, especially bilateral dialogue,” he said.

“Rohingya crisis is a bilateral issue of Bangladesh and Myanmar. But in solving the crisis, they need helping hands, including China,” he added.  Li Jiming We hope we can see a very concrete and sustainable result in the near future,” he added.

“China made a lot of efforts as the mediator between Myanmar and Bangladesh to resolve the Rohingya crisis. China is not the main player. Bangladesh and Myanmar are the main players. China is only helping to find a solution of the crisis. We hope we can see a very concrete and sustainable result in the near future,” he added.

For solving the Rohingya issue, he mentioned a prescription of three steps viz. stopping further violence in Rakhine

at first and, secondly, speedy repatriation. The third measure is economic development in Rakhine. “If the Rohingyas stay here for five years, 10 years or 50 years, what will happen? Just imagine.

So an early repatriation is needed,” he said, adding that “Rohingya is an issue belonging to Myanmar but Bangladesh has been affected since there has been an influx.”
