No directive to stop providing visas to Pakistanis: Foreign Minister


Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Tuesday said no directive was given to stop issuing visas to Pakistanis mentioning that Pakistan is yet to grant visa to Bangladesh Counsellor (Consular) to resume his work in Bangladesh‘s Islamabad mission.

‘No directive was given to stop issuing visas to Pakistanis. But, some particular persons may not get visas,’ he told reporters at his office, reports the UNB.

The Foreign Minister said if the Counsellor (Consular) does not get visa and cannot go to Pakistan how visas will be processed. ‘I don’t know the reasons. I hope, they’ll settle the pending (visa) matters.’
