The US President Joseph R Biden has said his country values friendship with Bangladesh and looks forward to strengthening ties over the next 50 years and beyond.
“The United States values our friendship with Bangladesh, and we believe that shared commitments to democracy and human rights form the foundation of strong partnerships,” he wrote in a letter.
The US president also wrote that he looks forward to working with Bangladesh “to strengthen these commitments to build an even brighter future for the people of our nations over the next 50 years and beyond”.
The US ambassador to Bangladesh Earl Miller read out his president’s letter in a video message that was aired at the celebration at National Parade Square this afternoon marking the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence and the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Terming Bangladesh an example of economic progress and a country of great hope and opportunity, Biden congratulated Bangladesh’s people for their ‘remarkable achievements’.
