‘Jasmine`s death won`t affect Dhaka-Washington relations’

Foreign minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has said that Sultana Jasmine’s death in the custody of the Rapid Action Battalion will not affect Dhaka-Washington relations.

The minister made the opinion while replying to a query of reporter at foreign ministry on Wednesday (March 29).

When asked whether Jasmine's death in RAB's custody will create any impact on Dhaka's relationship with Washington, the minister said of course not. 

"Incidents like this are happening every day in America. A child was killed at school this week. Is the relationship with someone getting worse there? Such events can happen suddenly,' he added.

Earlier, the 45-year-old woman died days after she was detained by the Rapid Action Battalion in Naogaon town on Wednesday. She died while undergoing treatment at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital on Friday morning.
