Bangladesh Says It Will Take India’s Side In Case Of War With Pakistan

Published on 5 October, 2016 at 12:35 pm By

Grateful for the help India extended in 1971, Bangladesh’s Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said that his country will support India in case Pakistan attacks.

This assurance from India’s neighbour is significant under the increasing tensions with Pakistan following the September 18 attack on an army brigade in Uri.

Dhaka has already supported India’s surgical strike against terror camps across the LoC. Bangladesh was also among the first three countries to join India in boycotting the SAARC summit scheduled to be held in Islamabad.

According to reports, Kamal said, “Bangladesh would stay beside India if it was attacked following the ongoing tension with Pakistan.”

He made the statement when asked about the country’s stand on the India-Pakistan row while at the Bangladesh Secretariat Reporters’ Forum (BSRF) Dialogue held at the secretariat late on October 4.

Kamal also pointed out how India came to Bangladesh’s aid in their Liberation War of 1971.

It is too early to say that Bangladesh will provide military assistance. Kamal dismissed any such indications by saying, “We do not share a border with Pakistan, and their land territory is 1,200 miles away from us. What they do does not affect us. We [Bangladesh] defeated them and sent them back in 1971; we don’t need to think about them any further.”
