Jerusalem as Capital

Dhaka expresses concern

Bangladesh has expressed deep concern at the recent announcement by the United States recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and urged all to take pragmatic approach for peace and stability in the region.

“Bangladesh stresses on preserving the legal status of Jerusalem within the framework of relevant UN resolutions,” said a foreign ministry statement yesterday.

Bangladesh reaffirms its position in favour of establishing the Palestine state on the basis of the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, it said.

Bangladesh urged all parties concerned to take a pragmatic approach to the Middle East peace process in reaching a two-state solution for peace and stability in the region.

A chorus of international leaders criticised the Trump administration's decision on Wednesday to officially recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, calling it a dangerous disruption that contravenes United Nations resolutions and could inflame one of the world's thorniest conflicts.
