BEIJING (China): Chinese foreign office (FO) spokesperson Hua Chunying, on Thursday, assumed, “As the situation in the Rakhine state has gradually stabilised, and Myanmar and Bangladesh have already reached a repatriation agreement, any external pressure at this moment on the human rights issue will only make things more complicated, instead of helping ease the situation and solve the problem, which is not in line with the interests of Myanmar, its neighbours, and the international community at large.”

According to detail, she added, “China always maintains that differences shall be addressed through constructive dialogue and cooperation on the basis of equality and mutual respect.”

Chunying concluded, “We hope that the international community could create an enabling environment for Myanmar to sort out the relevant issue.”
