Dhaka always in favour of peaceful coexistence among neighbours
Bangladesh wants China and India to de-escalate the situation along the Ladakh border immediately.
"Our position is always clear. We want peace, not conflict. Both China and India are our friends," Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen told Dhaka Tribune on Wednesday night.
"We do hope both China and India will de-escalate the situation immediately and resolve all issues through negotiations," he said.
"We believe in peaceful coexistence among neighbours in the interest of development," he added.
At least 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a clash with Chinese forces in a disputed border area in Ladakh on Tuesday. There has been no word from Beijing about Chinese casualties.
