The US embassy in Dhaka today said it condemns the use of any inflammatory language, intimidation, or threats of violence as a local BNP leader in a rally in Rajshahi recently threatened Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to “sent to the graveyard”.
“The U.S. Embassy condemns the use of any inflammatory language, intimidation, or threats of violence,” the US embassy’s public affairs chief told BSS today.
Sean J. McIntosh added that the US stands firmly against any attempts to incite violence, and "we reiterate our support for the principles of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law".
McIntosh said the US is committed to supporting Bangladesh in its pursuit of a stable, prosperous, and democratic future.
"Political stability, peaceful coexistence, and respect for democratic principles are vital for any society to flourish," he added.
