Meanwhile, Bangladesh urged Canada to send back Bangabandhu's killer Noor Chowdhury to execute the court verdict at home

Canadian Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne, during a telephone conversation with his Bangladeshi counterpart Dr AK Abdul Momen, has called for an alliance in fighting post-COVID-19 challenges.

Reiterated Canada’s support to Bangladesh in responding to the health and economic implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian minister also said on Wednesday that the two nations enjoy a long-standing relationship, strengthened by development cooperation, growing trade, people-to-people links and Canada’s commitment to support the Rohingya crisis.

He acknowledged that the repatriation of Rohingyas to their place of origin is a "collective responsibility" and assured Bangladesh of Canada's continued support, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, reports UNB. 

François-Philippe Champagne appreciated Bangladesh's humanitarian gesture and generosity in giving shelter to Rohingyas and also said they kept their discussion on Rohingya issue open with various countries. 

He also thanked Dr Momen for extending cooperation and help Canadian citizens return home from Bangladesh through chartered flights.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh urged Canada to send back Bangabandhu's killer Noor Chowdhury to execute the court verdict at home. 

Dr Momen said it will be a big achievement for the people of Bangladesh if the killer of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is brought back to Bangladesh and the verdict is executed in the year of Bangabandhu's birth centenary.

According to the government, Bangabandhu’s convicted killers Noor Chowdhury and Rashed Chowdhury have been living in Canada and the USA respectively.
