Foreign Minister Momen urges Congresswoman Meng, who represents a large number of Bangladeshi diaspora voters in New York


Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has called upon Congresswoman Grace Meng (Democrat, NY) to make efforts to legalize undocumented Bangladeshi diaspora in the US by taking up the matter with the new US government.

Dr Momen had a meeting with US Congresswoman Grace Meng on Wednesday, when they discussed ways and means to further improve political and economic ties between Bangladesh and the US.

Grace Meng represents a large number of Bangladeshi diaspora voters in New York, and has always been an active member of the Bangladesh caucus in the US Congress.

Dr Momen appreciated the Biden administration’s liberal approach to immigration.

Referring to the celebration of the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the Golden Jubilee of the Independence of Bangladesh, he invited Congresswoman Meng to visit Bangladesh with a group of US lawmakers.

They are invited to see the remarkable socio-economic progress achieved under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, and also the current situation of the displaced Rohingyas.

Dr Momen briefed the US lawmaker on Bangladesh’s success in tackling the Covid-19 challenge, as well as on the conducive environment existing for foreign investment in the country.  

The Foreign Minister is currently visiting Washington DC on an official trip to reach out to the new administration to further enhance bilateral relations, and to convey Bangladesh’s willingness to work closely with the new US administration.
