Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali has requested the US administration to extradite repatriate Rashed Chowdhury, a convicted killer of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, to face justice in Bangladesh.
“The return of this convicted killer would create a tremendous amount of goodwill about the United States among the people of Bangladesh,” Ali said, reports BSS.
The Bangladesh foreign minister made the request during his meeting with Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan on Tuesday at the United States Department of State in Washington, DC, an official release said here today.
Ali is visiting the US to take part in the high-level global meeting on religious freedom on July 25-26. The US State Department is hosting the high-level meeting.
The Bangladesh foreign minister also urged to mount pressure on Myanmar to ensure dignified, safe and sustainable return of the forcibly displaced Rohingyas.
In response, Deputy Secretary Sullivan assured that the United States would continue to work with Myanmar government for their early repatriation, saying, he is aware of the issue and the United States Department of Justice is dealing with this.
