As per the foreign policy, the government is keen to deepen friendship with all. But the beginning is with the Asian neighbors.

On January 15, After the meeting with Foreign Minister Dr. Hasan Mahmud, Pranay Verma said that this relationship can play a stronger role in the development partnership of the two countries.

India, China, Egypt, Algeria, Italy, Russia, European Union, Commonwealth, United Nations, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, Singapore, Malaysia, Brazil, Luxembourg, Japan and UNDP and many countries and organizations have congratulated Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on her 4th term victory.

But the US Ambassador Peter Haas caught everyone’s attention. He said that Bangladesh and the United States will work on how to increase trade expansion.

European Council President Charles Michel said in his congratulatory message to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina that the European Union is committed to continue working together with Bangladesh on sustainable development, climate change, migration, and other common interests.

Countries like India, Russia, China, and various countries of the Middle East have been seen to adopt a flexible position even before the 12th national elections. The United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada were neutral. And some other rich countries including the European Union, Japan took a moderate position. The government may consider these in the future for increasing ties. However, countries that disagree with the current government’s political philosophy are rich and powerful. Diplomatic analysts think that the Awami League government should consider this.

But geopolitically, Bangladesh has now become important in Asia as well as in the world. Bangladesh’s relationship with neighboring India is historic. The relationship between the two countries is also important in the commercial field. The major investors in Bangladesh are Russia and China, the major export markets are the European Union and the United Kingdom. The Middle East is a major labor market and source of energy for Bangladesh’s remittances. Japan is the biggest development partner of Bangladesh. Since these countries are interested in working with the current government, Bangladesh will use the opportunity to deepen the friendship as soon as possible.
