Bangladesh reaffirms its commitment to peacekeeping

The United Nations has welcomed the proposal of Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen to invest in strategic communications showcasing women in peacekeeping in an effort to increase their participation in peacekeeping. 

Momen met UN Under Secretary General (Department of Operational Support) Atul Khare in New York on Monday and discussed the issue. 

During the meeting, the foreign minister reiterated Bangladesh's commitment to peacekeeping and thanked the under secretary general for their support to Bangladesh, especially for including Biman Bangladesh Airlines to transport the peacekeepers to the field. 

USG Khare expressed his deep appreciation to Bangladesh for their contribution to peacekeeping. 

He appreciated the South Asian country for its leadership in implementing the UN's environmental strategy in the field. 

Khare also praised Bangladesh's readiness to deploy peacekeepers with enabling assets. 

The foreign minister invited Khare to visit Bangladesh at an opportune moment and share his insights on peacekeeping with the audience in Bangladesh.

Foreign Minister Momen arrived in New York on June 13 to attend important meetings at the United Nations.  

Among others, he will attend the joint thematic event on LDCs at the United Nations General Assembly, and two important events "The current situation in Myanmar: implication for the Rohingya minority" and "Building Resilience for sustainable and Irreversible Graduation of the LDCs" organized by Bangladesh, along with other UN member states and UN Secretariat.  

Momen is scheduled to meet the UN secretary general, president of the General Assembly, and other high-level UN dignitaries during his week-long visit.
