Pakistan should be isolated for supporting terror: BangladeshBangladesh Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Sunday assured support to India on the issue of tackling terror, saying Pakistan needs to be isolated for "harbouring terrorists and supporting terror acts".
Bangladesh Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Sunday assured support to India on the issue of tackling terror, saying Pakistan needs to be isolated for "harbouring terrorists and supporting terror acts".
He was also of the opinion that the delay in the Teesta water sharing treaty with India is giving scope to Opposition parties and fundamentalist organisations like Jamat in flaring up anti-India passions in Bangladesh.
"Pakistan has always harboured and supported terrorists. We feel those who support terrorism should be discouraged and isolated. We should do everything to discourage and condemn such attacks. Such kind of terror attacks should not be carried out against any country," Kamal told PTI in an interview.
While sharing the agony and pain of India being one of the most affected countries of cross-border terrorism, he says Bangladesh stands by India in its fight against terrorism.
On terror attacks both in India and Bangladesh having roots in Pakistan, he said, "Both India and Bangladesh have the same stand on the issue of terrorism. We have noticed in recent past, how Pakistan's involvement in various terror attacks has come out in open. This has to stop."
Amid heightened tension with Pakistan over Uri terror attack in which 18 jawans were killed, India had announced its decision of pulling out of the SARRC Summit citing increased "cross-border" attacks.
Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Bhutan also pulled out of the SAARC Summit in Islamabad in November, indirectly blaming Pakistan for creating an environment which was not right for successful holding of the meet, resulting in its collapse.
