Bangladesh on Thursday sought to put a lid on the controversy sparked by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s recent remarks about the neighbouring country, saying “there is no misunderstanding now and such mistakes do happen.”
“Such type of mistakes do happen. There is no scope for any misunderstanding now. We are looking forward to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s visit to Bangladesh in September,” foreign minister Dipu Moni said.
Her comments came when she was asked about Singh’s controversial “off-the-record” remarks that 25% people of Bangladesh were anti-India.
Singh’s remarks had drawn sharp reactions from political parties in Bangladesh.
