FO: (Pakistan refutes Bangladesh allegations about war atrocities)

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has firmly rejected insinuation of Bangladesh about its “complicity in committing crimes or war atrocities”.

Acting BD High Commissioner of Bangladesh was summoned to Foreign Office and conveyed that the allegations levelled in the note issued by BD External Affairs Ministry on November 23 were baseless.

He was told that it is regrettable that attempts have been made by the Government of Bangladesh to malign Pakistan, despite our ardent desire to develop brotherly relations with that country.

Pakistan has reiterated its desire for further enhancing relations with Bangladesh, because it believes that the hearts of the people of Pakistan beat in unison with the people of Bangladesh.

The BD envoy was told that it was imperative to move forward in the spirit of goodwill, friendship and harmony for the collective good of the peoples of Pakistan and Bangladesh.
