Visiting UN Under Secretary General and Special Adviser on Prevention of Genocide Adama Dieng on Sunday said the United Nations will raise the 1971 issue of Pakistani genocide in Bangladesh in the international forum. He also said that he is well aware of the fact that some countries may oppose his proposal but he will still raise this issue.
He said, ‘Though some countries may oppose it, we’ll raise the issue of Pakistani genocide in Bangladesh during the Liberation War in the international forum.’
He made the above statement while meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at the PMO’s office, said PM’s press secretary Ihsanul Karim while briefing the reporters.
Bangladesh observes March 25 as National Genocide Day and is trying to get international recognition for it.
