US ambassador in Dhaka meets Khaleda
US Ambassador to Bangladesh Marcia Stephens Bloom Bernicat met with BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Wednesday to gain a better understanding of Bangladesh’s current political climate, officials say. The meeting began around 4:50pm at the BNP chairperson's Gulshan office, lasting for nearly two hours. Bernicat last met the three-time former premier on January 25, 2016. Following the meeting, Ambassador Bernicat told reporters that it was her responsibility to understand the current political climate of Bangladesh by meeting various political parties, and the meeting was a part of it. The ambassador recently met with Awami League Secretary General Obaidul Quader, and would seek meetings with other political figures in the future, she said. During the two-hour meeting, Khaleda informed the US envoy of the country's prevailing political situation and also discussed BNP's proposals on the formation of the Election Commission, and the recently-appointed election commissioners, sources at the meeting told the Dhaka Tribune. The BNP chief also informed the ambassador about its proposal for a supporting government, which it intends to place before Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina shortly. Khaleda also informed her about the cases filed against her and the party members. She also shed light on the BNP's call to hold a political dialogue for a democratic society. BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, Standing Committee member Nazrul Islam Khan, and Khaleda's Adviser Riaz Rahman also attended the meeting.
