Bangladesh committed against militancy: PM

 

pmReiterating Bangladesh’s zero tolerance policy towards militancy, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said she had urged world leaders to find the root of terrorism and militancy.

“I have upheld my firm stance against terrorism and militancy and urged the world leaders to find the root of such attacks during the ASEM summit,” Hasina said.

She was briefing reporters at Gono Bhaban in Dhaka this afternoon on her recently concluded Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit held in Mongolia where the focus of discussion was the threat of terrorism worldwide.

Referring to the recent attacks in Bangladesh, Hasina said, “We will have to find out the patrons of the militant forces and the suppliers of arms and financial aids to them. We will have to work together to combat militancy.”

Remembering the August 21 grenade attack, the prime minister said the act of terrorism is not new in Bangladesh. It has spread across the world. “I myself am a victim of grenade attack.”

Hasina, also the president of the ruling Awami League, said “Militancy has now turned into a global problem. Awareness is not only being raised in my country but also across the world.”
