Turkey Recalls Ambassador to Bangladesh Over Execution of Jamaat Leader


Motiur Rahman Nizami

Anadolu Agency

ISTANBUL — The Turkish Foreign Ministry has recalled its ambassador to Bangladesh for consultations in the aftermath of hanging of a senior Jamaat-e-Islami party leader in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, an unnamed diplomatic source said Thursday.

According to the diplomatic source who spoke on condition of anonymity, due to restrictions on speaking with the media, Turkish Ambassador Devrim Öztürk is expected to arrive in the capital Ankara Thursday.

On Wednesday, the Turkish Foreign Ministry strongly condemned the execution of Motiur Rahman Nizami.

Nizami was hanged at the Dhaka Central Jail Wednesday after he was convicted for committing atrocities during Bangladesh’s war of independence with Pakistan in 1971.
