Bangladesh peacekeepers have rescued 32 Chinese gold mine workers in the Central African Republic (CAR) from an attack by armed rebels.

On December 16, 2020, armed rebels attacked a group of Chinese nationals working at a gold mine in the Gaga area of the country and looted six vehicles from them, an ISPR press release on Sunday night.

Following the attack, the Chinese miners fled the area and sought refuge from a patrol team of Bangladeshi peacekeepers.

The patrol team rescued them and took the workers to their camps to provide food, security and shelter. 

The courageous step by the Bangladeshi peacekeepers has earned appreciation by all, including the mission headquarters.

In this context, the Permanent Representative of China to the United Nations sent a letter of appreciation to the Bangladeshi peacekeepers for rescuing their citizens and providing necessary security and shelter through friendly treatment, the statement added.
