China visit:

On a question, the prime minister said she will pay a visit to China next month.

“I will say about China that I will visit the country like Japan Insha Allah,” she said.

In this connection, Sheikh Hasina said there was an invitation for visiting China. “But I could not go there as parliament session was continuing at that time,” she said.

The prime minister informed the journalists that the Chinese president has invited her to visit China and Summer Summit of World Economic Forum will be held at that time.

“Discussion is underway to fix the date for the visit and I will go there Insha Allah,” she said.

Replying to a question about China’s stand on the Rohingya issue, Sheikh Hasina said Beijing also wants their repatriation, but the problem is that Myanmar does not want to take back their nationals from Bangladesh.

“We’ve signed agreement with Myanmar in this regard, but the Myanmar authorities are not interested to this end. We’ll get a result if all put pressure on Myanmar. Otherwise, it’s difficult to host the Rohingyas for a long period,” she added.
