Bangladesh launches talks with Myanmar on Rohingya repatriation deal

Wiki Media

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has urged Bangladesh and Myanmar to resolve the Rohingya crisis through bilateral negotiations instead of an worldwide initiative. "We call on the global community to help the region get rid of poverty and increase investment".

Federica Mogherin said in the ASEM meeting to be held in Myanmar, she will discuss with the Myanmar leadership at different levels on the Rohingya repatriation.

Suu Kyi, whose reputation as a democracy and human rights advocate has been battered by the crisis, lauded the relationship between China and Myanmar.

A statement from Bangladesh's Foreign Ministry said that when the issue of displaced Myanmar nationals was raised, Mr Wang stated China would help resolve the issue and not be partial to any side.

"First is to have a cease-fire and to restore order and stability, so the people could stop running away and live in peace", Wang said.

"Economic development of Rakhine State is needed".

Wang Dehua, director of the Institute for Southern and Central Asian Studies at the Shanghai Municipal Centre for International Studies, said Bangladesh and Myanmar were both strategically important to China, especially in terms of the "Belt and Road Initiative", Xi's signature policy to connect China with Europe.

Kono was speaking after visiting Rohingya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar's Kutupalong area.

She said the government is feeding 160 million people of the country and they will share their food with the Rohingyas, if needed.

Yesterday, Bangladesh said it is in negotiations with Myanmar aimed at a deal to repatriate Rohingya refugees and that Dhaka's Foreign Minister will address the matter at talks in Myanmar this week.

She said global pressure should be mounted on Myanmar to implement the Kofi Annan Commission's recommendations.

She said the Rohingyas were in a very dismal state and that she had directed the authorities concerned to keep vigil so that no vested quarter could hire them taking advantage of their frustrations.

Mr Wang arrived in Bangladesh on Saturday for a two-day visit and from there, he will go to Myanmar to attend the Asia-Europe Meeting.
