“The attempts by the Bangladesh government to malign Pakistan, despite our keen desire to develop brotherly relations with it, are regrettable,” the FO spokesman said.

He said that the 1974 Tripartite Agreement was the cornerstone of relations between the two countries. “It needs to be emphasized that, as part of the agreement, the Bangladesh government “decided not to proceed with the trials as an act of clemency.”
