Menon slams govt for silence on Middle East Peace Plan
Workers Party President Rashed Khan Menon today in the parliament criticised the government for "playing a silent role over Middle East Peace Plan by US President Donald Trump".
Speaking on a point of order, Menon said US is trying to hand over Palestine to Israel in the name of the so called peace plan.
"Bangladesh's diplomatic policy is to support the Palestinian people's struggle for their independence. But US President Donald Trump, together with Benyamin Netanyahu, worked out a plan to hand over Palestine to Israel," Menon said.
As per the plan, the Workers Party MP said, Palestine will not have any army and their freedom fighters will be disarmed.
He also said the Palestine government, OIC, EU and many other nations have turned down Donald Trump's Middle East Peace Plan.
"Bangladesh always stood by Palestine in the past. But the government is yet to say anything on this plan," he added.
He questioned whether the government remains silent in fear of Donald Trump.
