Efforts underway to resolve Myanmar firing issue through discussion

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said that efforts are being made to resolve the issue of Myanmar’s firing reaching Saint Martin's Island through discussions with the country.

He said these at a press briefing at the Awami League president's office in Dhaka’s Dhanmondi.

Quader said, “We are ready. We won’t attack. But we will not spare if they attack. Resistance will be built if we are attacked. We have no antagonism with Myanmar. The door of discussion is open.”

He said, “Our neighboring country Myanmar has some internal crises. They have 54 ethnic groups. There are conflicting among themselves. It will be very unfortunate if we suffer from their internal crisis. There is a military government there. We are trying to solve it through discussions and will continue to do so avoiding war. However, if we are attacked, we will respond to that attack. There is no reason to underestimate us. We are ready.”

He said efforts are ongoing and Bangladesh will continue to seek resolution through discussions, avoiding war. However, if attacked, a response will be given.

Awami League Joint General Secretary A F M Bahauddin Nasim, Organizational Secretary B M Mozammel Haque, Sujit Roy Nandi, were present at the time, among others.
