Outgoing US Ambassador to Bangladesh, Patricia A Butenis has said that Washington does not want to see any sort of military involvement in Bangladesh politics.
She made the comment in an interview with Voice of America, Bangla Service. She said it will be a mistake for the military to be involved in the political process.
The outgoing US envoy also discouraged formation of any political party under any kind of "pressure". She said, "I don't want to see anybody coerced or forced to join a new party, and certainly we do not want to see military involvement in politics...I have made this point before that military should not take any sort of political role."
