Bangladesh To Develop Ties With India China
By satya sruthi On 08 Jan, 2019  


Dhaka: Bangladesh would cultivate more effective ties with India and China, pursuing a vigorous economic diplomacy, newly appointed foreign minister Abdul Kalam Abdul Momen said today.

Seventy-one year old Momen also said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina directed him to intensify cooperation with neighbours on the basis of "solid partnership" and ensure that the foreign office acts as a partner of other ministries to draw more foreign investments in the country.

"My main focus will be to pursue a vigorous economic diplomacy with all major countries and particularly the neighbours," Mr Momen told PTI in an interview a day after assuming the office, indicating that the new government wanted to reap the benefit of the friendships with both India and China.

An economist by background, Mr Momen said his office would effectively do its part to elevate the country''s status as a higher middle income by 2021 as envisaged by the premier and draw the required foreign assistance in implementing the government''s ambitious development plans.

Mr Momen said intense relations with neighbours like India and China would remain as a major policy while he would try to cultivate more effective ties with all major foreign nations like the US, the UK and France keeping Bangladesh''s integrity intact.

"In no time in the recent history, our relations with India was so good. We will maintain it and rather take it to another level," he said.

Simultaneously, Bangladesh would try to reap benefits of its ties with China as it offered a huge amount as credit for the country's development, Mr Momen said.
