Zero-tolerance policy against militancy, terrorism: President

President M Abdul Hamid on Thursday reiterated Bangladesh's "zero tolerance policy" against acts of terrorism and militancy as outgoing Japanese Ambassador Masato Watanabe called on him at Bangabhaban in the city on Thursday, reports BSS.

"Bangladesh always shows zero-tolerance policy against militancy and terrorism," President's Press Secretary M Joynal Abedin quoted him as telling the envoy.

Referring to terror attack at Gulshan Holey Artisan Bakery where some Japanese nationals were killed, the President shared the profound grief at the loss of lives there.

President Hamid expressed satisfaction over the existing excellent bilateral relations between Bangladesh and Japan saying, "Since the great Liberation War of Bangladesh in 1971, Japan is a tested friend of Bangladesh and also an important development partner."

He congratulated the Japanese ambassador on completion of his successful tenure in Bangladesh and recalled with gratitude the contribution of Japan to Bangladesh's Liberation War in 1971 and recognising Independent Bangladesh on February 10, 1972.

"The bilateral relation between Bangladesh and Japan is being enhanced day by day," the President observed seeking for more Japanese investments in Bangladesh in different sectors.

Abdul Hamid lauded different development projects of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) that is playing a very positive role to accelerate country's socio-economic progress.
