The six-member CPC team, led by its international department assistant minister Wang Yajun, went to the BNP chief's Gulshan office around 7:00pm and held nearly an hour-long meeting with her.
Talking to newsmen after the meeting, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said their chairperson talked to the delegation about the Rohingya problem.
"She (Khaleda) told them (CPC delegation) that China can play the role of a mediator in resolving the Rohingya crisis," he said.
The BNP chief also requested the Chinese leaders to take effective steps so that Rohingyas can go back to their own country immediately, Fakhrul added.
In reply, he said, the CPC leaders said their country is working to resolve the problem and ensure a safe return of Rohingyas to their country by maintaining good relations with the two neighbouring countries.
Fakhrul said their chairperson hoped that the relations between China and Bangladesh will be consolidated further in the days to come.
Apart from Fakhrul, BNP standing committee member Mahbubur Rahman, chairperson's advisers Reaz Rahman and Sabihuddin Ahmed were present at the meeting.
