Awami League Joint General Secretary and Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today urged journalists to be careful when publishing news on Bangladesh-India relations so that the news does not affect the relations through inaccurate information.
"Recently, we saw that some media in Bangladesh and India have published wrong news over Covid-19 issue which created anger among the people of the two countries. Later, it was resolved through press conferences by concerned Indian authority," he said.
The minister said this while addressing the seminar 'Bangabandhu: Bangladesh-India Relations' organised by Indian Media Correspondents Association, Bangladesh (IMCAB) at Jatiya Press Club (JPC) in the city.
Indian High Commissioner Sri Vikram Doraiswami addressed the seminar as special guest with IMCAB president Basudev Dhar in the chair.
