The foreign minister on Sunday blamed media for
allowing foreign diplomats posted in Dhaka to dabble into Bangladesh’s internal
affair which often creates unwarranted irritants in bilateral ties.
Dipu Moni also criticised media as in most
occasions, she alleged, they do not give proper treatment to rejoinders, rather
publish only ‘edited version’ of any rejoinder.
The foreign minister came up with her
critical views about the media while inaugurating a five-day orientation
workshop for diplomatic correspondents at the foreignservice academy in the
‘Journalists often press the foreign diplomats
for making comments on Bangladesh’s internal affairs… And they are sometime
tempted by the press to make comments on our internal affair. This creates confusion
in our bilateral ties,’ Dipu Moni said.
The foreign minister suggested that media should not ask
foreign diplomat for comments on the country’s internal affair.
