Bangla­desh urged to use 1974 accord to address issues


Pakistan on Thursday asked Bangla­desh to use the Tripartite Ag­­reement of 1974 to addr­ess outstanding issues in the bilateral relationship.

Pakistani High Commis­sioner in Dhaka Imran Ahmed Siddiqui during a meeting with Bangladesh State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam han­ded over to the latter a copy of the Tripartite Agree­­ment of 1974, according to a statement issued by the Pakistani mission in Bangladesh.

It has been Pakistan’s longstanding position that the tripartite agreement signed by the then foreign ministers of Bangladesh, India and Pakistan for repatriation of war prisoners had meant closure of the past.
