STORY:  In a rare telephone conversation with his Bangladesh counterpart  Sheikh Hasina Wajed, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday (July 22) expressed his condolences over the lives lost in Dhaka to the novel coronavirus .

“ Prime Minister Imran Khan held a telephonic conversation with Sheikh Hasina Wajid, Prime Minister of Peoples’ Republic of Bangladesh, yesterday. The Prime Minister offered condolences on behalf of the government and people of Pakistan on the unfortunate loss of human lives in the recent flooding in Bangladesh and prayed for early recovery of the people affected by this natural calamity,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Aisha Farooqi told a weekly news briefing in Islamabad on Thursday (July 23).

 

Farooqi said  Khan underlined the importance of both countries working for enhanced regional cooperation in order to bring sustainable peace and prosperity in the region.

“The Prime Minister underscored the importance Pakistan attaches to closer ties with the fraternal people of Bangladesh. He further highlighted the significance of regular bilateral contacts and people to people exchanges. Prime Minister Imran Khan also reaffirmed Pakistan’s commitment to SAARC, and underlined the importance of both countries working together for enhanced regional cooperation for sustainable peace and prosperity,” she said.

 

The spokesperson said Khan drew attention to the situation in Kashmir and “stressed the importance of peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute for a safe and prosperous region”.

Farooqi said , while extending an invitation to the Bangladeshi prime minister to visit Pakistan, Imran Khan said that Pakistan wants a relationship with Bangladesh based on trust, mutual respect, and sovereignty.

 

Diplomatic relations between Bangladesh and Pakistan cooled down when Pakistan's national and provincial parliaments adopted resolutions against the trial of war criminals in Bangladesh in 2016.

Dhaka retaliated by issuing repeated calls to Islamabad not to interfere in the internal matters of Bangladesh.

 

Political analysts say the rising Chinese influence on Dhaka in recent months will help in bringing Pakistan and Bangladesh closer after years of frosty relations.
