Speaking on Wednesday at the United tions General Assembly, Hasi said the implementation of the boundary agreement “brought to a peaceful end the lingering humanitarian situation” of 50,000 stateless residents in 162 enclaves. “By doing so jointly with India, we have a unique precedent for the world,” she said. Hasi listed terrorism along with climate changes as the twin greatest threats to the sustaibility of human civilisation. She recalled her persol experiences saying that she had been the target of 19 terror attacks and her father, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and her mother had been killed by extremists.

“My government, therefore, maintains a ‘zero tolerance’ policy to all forms of terrorism, violent extremism and radicalisation,” she said. “We are steadfast in tackling the extremists and the anti-liberation forces who remain active in destroying the democratic, progressive and secular ethos of our tion.” (IANS)
