“Stop these games of weapons and arms race as these cause most sufferings for women and children,” she said.
The prime minister said everyone is witnessing the rattle of wars across the globe right now.
“Earlier Ukrine-Russia war, now Israel attacked Palestine, and Israel has already grabbed more than half of the Palestine,” she said.
She mentioned that her family members and she had a bad experience of war and killings.
“During the Liberation War we were under the captivity of the occupying forces, and after August 15, 1975, we saw the brutality of a refugee life,” she said.
