Washington, May 7 (IBNS): US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Nisha Desai Biswal on Saturday said her visit to Bangladesh was productive.

"Home after a productive trip to #Bangladesh where we advanced cooperation on countering terrorism and extremism," she tweeted.

"Clear that there are a diversity of views on religion, race, sexual orientation in #Bangladesh," she said.

The American official said Bangladesh and the Asian nation shared common goal of stopping murderers and terrorists.

She said: "We share a common goal of stopping murderers & terrorists who seek to sow fear & undermine democracy & fundamental freedoms. #Bangladesh."

Several people, including bloggers and Hindu priests, have been killed by attackers in Bangladesh in the past one year.

Militant groups like ISIS have claimed responsibility for the incidents.

Nisha met several top Bangladeshi officials during her visit to the Asian nation.
