AL for cutting diplomatic ties with Pakistan

The ruling Awami League will urge the foreign ministry to cut diplomatic relations with Pakistan following resolution of the country’s National Assembly expressing concern over execution of war criminal Abdul Quader Mollah.

The decision came at a meeting of AL’s international affairs sub-committee today at party chief Sheikh Hasina’s political office in Dhanmondi this afternoon.

“We have discussed the issue and will notify our foreign ministry to consider the decision to curtail diplomatic ties with Pakistan. Then government will take decision,” Muhammad Jamir, president of the sub-committee, told journalists after the meeting.

The party also denounced the European Union for skipping Victory Day programme at the National Moslem in Savar.

“The European Union violated diplomatic norms by not attending Victory Day programme in Savar,” added Jamir, also a former ambassador.
