Bernicat said it was her responsibility as an US envoy to understand the current political climate by meeting various political parties.
“We discussed a wide range of issues, as is routine. I’ll be seeking meetings with other political figures in the future as well,” said the US envoy. She came up the remarks while talking to reporters after nearly a two-hour meeting with the BNP chief that began around 4:50pm at the latter’s Gulshan office.
“I recently met general secretary of Awami League Mr Obaidul Quader. This evening, I met BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia,” Bernicat said.
Contacted, a BNP leader who was present at the meeting, told media that they discussed Bangladesh’s latest political situation, law and order, human rights condition, the new Election Commission, the development regarding the BNP chairperson’s cases and the next general election.
He said they also talked about the BNP chairperson’s proposal, to be presented before the nation in the days to come, on election-time supportive government.
The BNP leader said they told the US envoy about what kind atmosphere their party wants to join the next polls. “We also told her (Bernicat) the next election will not be different from 2014’s January-5 one if an election-time neutral administration is not installed.”
He also said Khaleda Zia and Bernicat had a one-to-one meeting for a while.
