Pakistan 'deeply' perturbed over executions in Bangladesh

Pakistan said that there is a need for reconciliation in Bangladesh in accordance with the spirit of Pakistan, India, Bangladesh Agreement of April 9, 1974.

Pakistan on Sunday voiced “concern and anguish” over the execution of two top opposition leaders in Bangladesh for war crimes committed during the 1971 war of independence from Pakistan.

Foreign Office issued a statement over the execution of "Bangladesh National Party leaders, Salauddin Quadir Chowdhury and Ali Ahsan Mojaheed", whose mercy petitions were rejected by President Abdul Hamid last evening.
