ISLAMABAD, June 7 (APP): High Commissioner of Bangladesh Tarik Ahsan Wednesday said that the Pak-BD relations were gradually moving towards normalcy and hoped that the bilateral political consultation between the
two countries would also be held in due course.
Talking to the media at an Iftar-cum-dinner reception at a local
hotel, he said though the political relations between the two countries
were a bit estranged due to certain incidents in the last couple of
years but the efforts of the two sides in bringing them back to normalcy would hopefully succeed in due course.
Responding to a query, he said the bilateral consultations had been postponed due to certain reasons by Pakistan, but after the
secretary-level meeting, which was expected in near future, would pave
the way for higher level meetings and visits. Such exchanges would help bring the relations back to normalcy.
Appreciating the support and cooperation of media, he said the press
was the main source of outreach of the Bangladesh High Commission and promotion of cordial relations between the two governments and peoples.
The Press Counsellor, Muhammad Iqbal Hossain, informed the media that the construction of the Bangladesh chancellery in Diplomatic Enclave was
a goodwill gesture on the part of his country and hoped that it would
also help bring the two Islamic brotherly countries closer to each other.
