Own Correspondent, Dhaka, 19 October 2023: The United States has not taken a stand for or against any party regarding the parliamentary elections in Bangladesh. Rather, Washington's demand is that Bangladeshis should be able to freely choose their leaders. In response to a question sent by diplomatic reporters on Wednesday, the spokesperson of the US Embassy in Dhaka, Brian Schiller, said these things.

A foreign media report talked about the US's efforts to change the political power in Bangladesh. Special Spokesperson Brian was asked how the United States could carry out such activities against another independent and sovereign country.

In response, Brian said that the United States is aware of the report. Ambassador Peter Haas and others have said several times, we are not against one party or another party in Bangladesh. We have no particular preference here. We want the people of Bangladesh to be able to elect their own leaders.

The spokesman said Deputy Assistant Secretary Afreen Akhtar said on Tuesday that the United States supports free, fair and peaceful elections in Bangladesh. Elections are not just about how they are conducted on polling day, but also the opportunity for civil society, the media and other stakeholders to freely participate in the democratic process.
