Foreign diplomats in Dhaka discuss political crisis

Diplomats from various countries stationed in Dhaka held a meeting in the city and discussed political issues to find ways on how they can help Bangladesh resolve the ongoing crisis peacefully.

A diplomatic source said the meeting was held at the residence of Australian High Commissioner in Dhaka Greg Wilcock in the afternoon.

The diplomats are reportedly observing the political situation and preferred the UN-led initiative to encourage the political parties to resolve their differences peacefully.

European Ambassador to Bangladesh Pierre Mayaudon, US Ambassador Marcia Stephens Bloom Bernicat and diplomats from Canada, European Union, Japan, Norway, France and Turkey were, among others, present at the meeting.

Sources said they had no serious discussion rather preferred to wait for few more days to observe the situation.

Meanwhile, the EU Ambassador hosted dinner for the visiting European Parliament delegation at his residence where diplomats were present. – Agencies
