The Foreign Office on Thursday summoned the High Commissioner of Bangladesh in Islamabad to protest the use of undiplomatic language in a Note Verbale, on an incident of obscure origin.

According to spokesperson Nafees Zakaria, the high commissioner was conveyed that sharing of a video by a third party cannot be attributed to the Pakistan High Commission in Dhaka.

He said that Pakistan has been pursuing a policy of maintaining friendly and cordial ties with Bangladesh.

“Pakistan desires to move forward in accordance with the Tripartite Agreement of 1974 wherein the Prime Minister of Bangladesh desired that the people of Bangladesh should 'forget the past and make a fresh start.'"
