The spokesman of the United Nation Secretary General reiterated Ban Ki Moon's call to "stop the violence that we are seeing" in Bangladesh.
In the regular press briefing at the UN Headquarters on Wednesday Mr Stephane Dujarric said that the UN Secretary General wants all political parties in Bangladesh to find a "peaceful political resolution" out of the current tension for long term development and stability of Bangladesh.
When a Bangladeshi correspondent wanted to raise a question on the arrest warrant against BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia the UN spokesperson asked the correspondent to stop. He said that the UN Secretary General was aware of the arrest warrant and "he remains very concerned".
The correspondent Mushfiqul Fazal Ansari, Deputy press Secretary to Begum Khaleda Zia when she was Prime Minister during 2001-2006, wanted to raise different questions on Bangladesh at the press briefing but he was stopped by the UN spokesman.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh Mission in the UN has written a letter to the concerned UN desk asking how a known BNP activist like Mushfiqul can get media accreditation from the UN and ask questions at UN press briefings maligning Bangladesh.
Recently Zahid Sardar Sadi, Adviser to the BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, has made a scandal by forging the signature of some US Congressman. The Congressman protested Sadi's fraudulence and BNP was compelled to expel him from party.
