lv346f346_5407279fe1db1President Abdul Hamid on Tuesday said that Bangladesh government has adopted a zero tolerance policy towards those who disturb peace in the country.

“Our people have learnt to live in harmony with nature and with each other. Yet, like any other society, there are few misguided who at times break the peace”, the President said when the participants of the 7th Asia-Pacific Intelligence Chiefs’ Conference (APICC) made a courtesy call on him at Bangabhaban.

Abdul Hamid said Bangladesh, a secular nation, has willingly partnered with international community to defeat the misguided forces.

He said “APICC is one such effort that surely will strengthen our collective effort in enhancing peace and security of the region.”

Abdul Hamid hoped that the success of the 7th APICC will build partnership not only among the intelligence communities of the region but will also create opportunities for wider cooperation among the participating nations
