Bangladesh has appealed for maintaining utmost restraint to ensure peace along the border with India for good neighbourly relations.

"I am deeply concerned at the repetition of incidents of firing along the border. Such unprovoked firing and killing of innocent civilians should stop immediately," Bangladesh Foreign Minister Morshed Khan told a local news agency.

He said that such incidents were detrimental to improving bilateral relations.

Khan called for maintaining utmost restraint to ensure peace in the frontier for good neighbourly relations.

Thousands of villagers in Bangladesh have fled following the firing incidents in the frontier as both sides agreed to hold a flag meeting on Sunday. The situation was calm on Saturday.
