“We are not here to mediate or interfere (Bangladesh) in internal politics,” he said at a press briefing marking the European Day at a city hotel this afternoon.
Whiteley, however, said they are here to meet and listen all political parties to understand the situation.
The envoy said the EU wants to see “free and fair” elections in Bangladesh without any violence as all Bangladeshis want to see the same.
Ambassador from other EU countries also joined briefing.
Whitely said the EU will send an exploratory election monitoring mission in July.
The EU has already received a written invitation from the Bangladesh Election Commission.
