Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Yao Wen on Saturday said China, as a responsible major country, has been “unswervingly mediating” between Bangladesh and Myanmar to promote the repatriation of the Rohingyas to their homeland, reports UNB.

“A local friend once told me sincerely that many people provide lip-services, but only China is actually doing practical things to proceed with the repatriation,” he said.

The ambassador was delivering keynote speech at a symposium as part of the Cosmos Dialogue Ambassadors’ Lecture Series entitled “Bangladesh-China Relations: Prognosis for the Future” at a hotel in Dhaka.

The event was chaired and conducted by President, Cosmos Foundation and former foreign affairs advisor Dr Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury. Chairman of Cosmos Foundation Enayetullah Khan made the welcome remarks.
