US sanctions on RAB officials politically motivated: Quader

The US sanctions on the IGP and six RAB officials have been politically motivated, Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said on Sunday adding that the decision will inspire terrorism and militancy.

At a briefing at his office in the secretariat this morning Quader said Rab as an elite force has been professional in discharge of its work.

He recalled the controversial US role during Bangladesh liberation war in 1971 and after assassination of Bangabandhu in 1975.

Yet Bangladesh did not allow these issues to stand on way of establishing friendly relations with Washington, he said.

He said the US move has hurt Bangladesh when it is celebrating 50 years of its independence.

The two countries are working from their respective positions on multilateral issues including bilateral and common issues, he said.
