Dhaka, 15 may 2018
Bangladesh strongly condemns the use of force by the Israeli authorities against the Palestinians which left scores of Palestine civilians dead and several thousand injured.
While expressing deep condolences and sympathies to the Palestinians, we call on international community to put pressure on Israel to stop the atrocities immediately.
Bangladesh also expresses its dismay at the United States’ move of shifting its Embassy to Jerusalem. Bangladesh stresses on preserving the legal status of Jerusalem within the framework of relevant UN resolutions.
Bangladesh reaffirms its position in favour of establishing the State of Palestine on the basis of two-state solution and on the pre- 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
