Dr Momen thanked the Saudi government for allowing Bangladeshi workers in the KSA despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Currently, the Bangladeshi workers have to stay in seven-day mandatory quarantine after reaching Saudi Arabia.

Momen also sought the Kingdom’s support for early repatriation of the persecuted Rohingyas from Bangladesh to their land of origin in Myanmar.

The Saudi foreign minister accepted Dr Momen’s invitation to visit Bangladesh at a convenient time.
