Foreign Minister AK Abdul Mamman on Tuesday said that his country has not stopped issuing visas to Pakistani nationals. Between the recent diplomatic dispute between Pakistan and Bangladesh, news came that the Dhaka High Commission in Islamabad stopped issuing visas to Pakistani nationals. In the press conference in Dhaka, he said, "The report should have been shown in the media in a reverse way."
Such reports came in the midst of the current crisis of Pakistan's inability to issue visas to Bangladeshi diplomats stationed in Islamabad. Earlier, in the media news it was said that Bangladesh has stopped issuing visas to Pakistani nationals. The minister said, "We have not stopped issuing visas to Pakistani nationals but there are delays in some cases, He is everywhere in the world. "
He said that Bangladesh's high commission in Islamabad is facing a shortage of employees and the process of issuing the visa is delayed. This is happening because Pakistan is delaying issuance of visas to the newly appointed Visa Counselor of Bangladesh in Islamabad. He said that Islamabad did not issue a visa to the officer who was to be sent temporarily to handle the issue of issuing a visa. Bangladesh had decided to hang many war criminals in the liberation war of 1971 in 2013.
