War trials added to instability
Expressing concern over the political developments in Bangladesh, Pakistan has said the recent trials have added to the current instability in the country.
"As a friendly country and fellow Saarc member state, we are closely following the political developments as they unfold inside Bangladesh," according to a press statement available in the Pakistan foreign ministry's website.
It said Pakistan's policy was not to interfere in the affairs of any country.
In an oblique reference to the trials in the International Crimes Tribunal and execution of war criminal Quader Mollah, the statement also said, "We have noted the concerns raised by the international community and human rights organisations on the way recent trials have been conducted which have added to the current instability in Bangladesh."
"We wish the brotherly people of Bangladesh well and hope that spirit of reconciliation and an atmosphere, free of violence, will prevail," said the statement issued in Islamabad on Friday.
