Foreign minister Dr AK Abdul Momen hoped that the Bangladesh-US relations will reach a new height under the new Biden administration.
“The developmental vision of Honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the welfare view of the new administration in the US closely matches lockstep,” he said.
Dr Momen said the new US administration has already marked such indications as it rejoined the Paris Agreement and also started exploring whether genocide took place in Myanmar.
“We welcome the new administrative and thank them for their initiatives,” he said.
The foreign minister was addressing the virtual ‘Frontline Journalism Award Presentation Ceremony’ on Sunday as chief guest.
The American Chamber of Commerce in Bangladesh (AmCham) organised the event while US ambassador to Bangladesh Earl R Miller spoke as the special guest.
Momen urged AmCham to play substantial role for boosting Bangladesh’s export to the USA and attract Foreign Direct Investment and incubation of technology.
He said Bangladesh hopes to promote “Culture of Peace,” creating a mindset of respect and tolerance towards others irrespective of religion, ethnicity, race and colour for a sustainable world of peace and stability across nations.
