Foreign Office Minister Hugo Swire urges an end to the last 60 days of violence and disruption in Bangladesh.
Hugo Swire said:
Britain has long been a close friend of Bangladesh. I am therefore particularly saddened about the last 60 days of violence and disruption which has had such an impact on the livelihood, education and security of so many Bangladeshi people. There is no place for this in a democratic Bangladesh.
The UK urges all of Bangladesh’s political parties, the Government and others in society, to take the confidence-building measures necessary to stop the violence, to reduce tension and to ensure an inclusive and participatory political process.
