China will play constructive role for Rohingyas : envoy

Dhaka, Jun 25 (UNI) Zhang Zuo Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh on Tuesday said that his country will play a 'constructive role' in resolving the Rohingya crisis.

'We will play a constructive role in resolving the protracted Rohingya crisis', he said when he paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her Jatiya Sangsad Office here.

PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting.

The prime minister said the forcibly displaced Rohingyas must go back to their homeland and urged China to pursuade Myanmar to take back their nationals from Bangladesh.

The press secretary said the prime minister and the ambassador also discussed the issue of upcoming visit of the premier to China.

In this connection, Sheikh Hasina said four instruments on bolstering bilateral cooperation would be signed between the two countries during her visit to China in the first week of July.
