“We are facing challenges every day.

But we are moving forward.

We want to be challenged and we are ready to deliver,” he said, reports UNB.

He was speaking at a launching ceremony of a publication titled “Success Stories of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs” at the Foreign Service Academy.

State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam highlighted Bangladesh’s achievements under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.


He, however, acknowledged two unfinished tasks – repatriation of the Rohingyas safely and bringing back the rest of the killers of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur.

“These two are very complex and challenging tasks,” said Shahriar.

He said a book cannot contain everything and noted that Bangladesh has gone through many challenges.

Awami League MP Mohammad A. Arafat said Bangladesh’s geopolitical importance has grown and many countries are willing to build strategic relations with Bangladesh.

“Super powers have keen eyes on Bangladesh. We have seen diversification of our friendship,” he said, adding that Bangladesh is making a balance smartly.
