Dipu Moni made the request during a meeting in Dhaka with Pakistan’s Hina Rabbani Khar following previous discussions about the issue between the two countries, said Bangladesh’s Foreign Secretary Mijarul Quayes.


“The foreign minister has raised the 1971 issue and expected that Pakistan would apologise at one stage,” Quayes told reporters after the meeting.


“There are some unresolved issues between the two governments and she expects that Pakistan would come forward to resolve them,” Quayes said.


Khar was on a six-hour visit to Bangladesh to formally invite Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to a summit scheduled to be held in Islamabad on November 22.


“The Pakistani foreign minister said that they have regretted in different forms in the past and that it was time to move forward,” Quayes said.
