Dhaka, May 21 (UNI): Bangladesh Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen on Tuesday rejected the media reports that Bangladesh halted visas for Pakistanis; however, acknowledged delays in issuing visas to the citizens of that country.

He said the delay was due to Islamabad authorities.

"The report should have appeared in media in a reverse way," he told a press conference at the ministry attributing the crisis to Islamabad’s inaction in issuing visas to Bangladeshi diplomats to be posted there.

He added, "we have not stopped issuing visas to Pakistanis, but delays could happen in some cases which are common worldwide."

Momen said Bangladesh High Commission in Islamabad was facing manpower shortage affecting the processing of visas.

"It is because the Pakistan authorities were delaying visas to those Bangladesh’s officials who were supposed to work at the High Commission there," he added.
