Desk Report: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has ruled out possibility of any political understanding with BNP, saying that nobody should come up with such a proposal.
"Those who are thinking about political understanding with the BNP should discard such thought," she told a press conference at Bangladesh's Permanent Mission in New York on Friday morning (Friday evening Bangladesh time).
She added, "No understanding could be reached with those who killed my parents . . . those who believe in the politics of terrorism and killing."
The premier also accused BNP of making desperate attempts to destroy the country.
"I have no intention to bring back those in politics who are involved in the terrorism and killing. So nobody should propose for political understanding with BNP, "she said.
The press conference was convened to brief the media about the outcome of her participation in the ongoing 72nd session of the UN General Assembly.
Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali and Bangladesh's Permanent Representative to the UN Masud Bin Momen were present at the presser, moderated by premier's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim.
