Law Minister Shafique Ahmed said yesterday the reported comment of a Pakistani official on Bangladesh's planned trial of war criminals is beyond diplomatic norms.
Pakistan's Additional Secretary for Asia-Pacific Masood Khalid reportedly told some Bangladeshi journalists in Islamabad on Saturday that relation between Bangladesh and Pakistan would be cooled if Dhaka goes on with the planned trial of war criminals.
Talking to newsmen at his secretariat office, the law minister said the government will try only those Bangladeshi citizens who had committed offences against humanity in collaboration with Pakistani occupation forces during the Liberation War in 1971.
"The issue of holding trial of the war criminals is our internal matter. We will not try any Pakistani citizen. Pakistan should not make any comment on this issue as per international laws," he said.
