Statement of the Embassy of France in Bangladesh
Ongoing violence in Bangladesh
France strongly condemns the violence destabilizing Bangladesh for now more than one month. The murderous acts occurring every day all over the country and provoking serious injuries and even death among innocent Bangladeshi citizens, men, women and children, are unacceptable in a democracy. France calls for the respect of the fundamental values shared by all democracies, above all respect of human lives and freedom of expression. France calls for a peaceful political solution to the ongoing crisis, preserving the lives of innocent people and the future of the country.
