The statement issued from Brussels on Friday was as follows:
“In the run up to the vote for the mayoral elections in Dhaka and Chittagong, all sides must refrain from any actions that could spark further violence in Bangladesh.We look to political leaders to create favourable conditions for peaceful, inclusive, transparent and credible elections to take place.
