Bangladesh Extends Support to India on Article 370 Revocation


Neighbouring country Bangladesh stood in support of the decision made by India on cancellation of Article 370 of the Constitution on Wednesday.

As per a statement released by the Bangladesh Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “Bangladesh maintains that the abrogation of Article 370 by the Indian Government is an internal issue.”

The released statement further added, Bangladesh always believed and promoted regional peace and stability and development being the major concern in all countries.

Many countries including Russia, Maldives, Afghanistan, UAE and Sri Lanka have supported India’s historic move on the 5th of August.

However, Pakistan has clearly expressed dissent over India’s step and has stated to take up the Kashmir matter to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) after the United National Security Council advised the two neighbouring countries to handle the situation “bilaterally”.

Meanwhile, India’s External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar is on a two-day visit to Dhaka.
