|Sunday, 30 December 2007|
Bangladeshi caretaker government Foreign Adviser Dr Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury said on Friday that the assassination of Pakistan's charismatic leader Benazir Bhutto would not make any adverse impact on Bangladesh.
Chowdhury was quoted by local newspaper The Independent Saturday as saying "the pace of stability that the country has already achieved, would continue."
He said, "it's very unfortunate. Black cloud has gathered in Pakistan's political horizon as well as the world."
Praising the courage of Benazir Bhutto, he said, "I do praise the courage of Benazir Bhutto. She really wanted democracy in Pakistan but unfortunately didn't get the opportunity."
Chowdhury, however, said that institutional reforms in Bangladesh was going on so that the people and the government remain immune from such a consequence.
The current caretaker government headed by Chief Adviser Fakhruddin Ahmed took office on January 12 this year. It launched massive drive against corruption under which lots of former ministers and MPs were arrested for corruption charges.
The government has committed to holding a fair and free election before the end of next year.
