Taranco has not finalised Dhaka visit plans: UN officials
17 February 2015, Nirapad News: UN officials have denied media reports in Bangladesh that Assistant Secretary General Oscar Fernández-Taranco has finalised his Dhaka visit to try to broker a solution to the political crisis.
Eri Kaneko, Associate Spokesperson for the UN Secretary General’s office, said Taranco had not finalized plans for the visit as yet. Bangladesh’s Permanent Representative to the UN, AKA Momen, also denied knowledge of any date being set for Taranco’s trip to Bangladesh. The UN had earlier said it was worried over renewed political strife and violence since the BNP-led alliance began a nationwide transport blockade on January 5.
