Bangladesh has said it believes that any meaningful and sustainable solution to the current conflict must need “intensive” diplomatic engagement and “dialogue” between the parties involved in the conflict, reports UNB.
“To our opinion, this important practical point is missing in the resolution. Therefore, we were constrained to abstain,” Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Seheli Sabrin told reporters on Sunday.
Bangladesh continues to remain concerned over the situation in Ukraine, particularly the loss of civilian lives, deteriorating humanitarian situation in conflict zone, and consequential socio- economic fallout around the globe, Sabrin said.
“We call for a cessation of hostilities and remain steadfast in our commitment that purposes and principles of the UN Charter should be upheld at any cost,” she said.
In this regard, the foreign ministry spokesperson said they see the importance of urging the UN Secretary-General and Member States to promote a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in Ukraine in the proposed resolution.
“We also firmly believe that peaceful settlement of international disputes must be complied with universally for everyone, everywhere under all circumstances, without exception,” she said.
