The decision to summon the Pakistan envoy was taken instantly as the Pakistan Foreign Ministry today issued a statement saying, “We have noted with deep concern and anguish the unfortunate executions... Pakistan is deeply disturbed at this development”.

“As emphasised earlier, we have also been noting the reaction of the international community on the flawed trials in Bangladesh related to events of 1971,” the Pakistan statement also reads.
