Responding to a question regarding the Bangladeshi foreign minister statement about the Chinese Ambassador's remarks, she said, "I haven't seen any reports on this issue."� She said, China and Bangladesh are very good neighbours, developing bilateral relations based on mutual trust and peaceful co-existence, and have been firmly supporting each other.
"About Chinese Ambassador's remarks on the Quad which involves Japan, US, India and Australia, we have made our position clear on this issue. We believe it is an exclusive clique against China and trying to rally countries around China to work against China. So, I believe you understand our position very clearly," she added.

We always follow the peaceful coexistence principle in developing bilateral rations and we always support each other and it is not China who has been interfering in others internal affairs. The Chinese side follows the principle of non interference in others internal affairs, it is what China has been doing.
"And India knows better than us about this Quad, what's the true intention of Quad, is it trying to exclude China, to target against China. If so, then it is not about interference, it is about expressing opposition about this Quad group. Also express the hope that that it will stop doing so," she added.
