Hanoi (VNA) – Myanmar and Bangladesh have accepted China’s mediatory role and agreed to implement a three-phase solution proposed by its Foreign Minister Wang Yi to resolve the Rohingya refugee crisis.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Bangladesh and Myanmar held bilateral negotiations on the issue.

Addressing a joint press conference with Myanmar’s State Counsellor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi at Nay Pyi Taw on November 19, Wang said the first phase is aimed to achieve a ceasefire so that local residents can no longer be displaced.

Second, the international community should encourage Myanmar and Bangladesh to keep communication in a bid to find a feasible solution to the issue while the third phase is to find a long-term solution.-VNA
