There is a view that with the Western world embroiled in its own challenges, there is a lack of global leadership. China tried to fill in the leadership gap through three-step formula.
- Myanmar and Bangladesh have to hold bilateral talks and reach a repatriation agreement.
- Declaration of ceasefire in Rakhine to halt further displacement and bringing immediate relief to the state’s devastated Rohingyas.
- China to provide economic assistance for the development of the Rakhine region.
China, in fact is playing a mediatory role. However, the Chinese three-step formula turned out to be of little consequence so far.
