Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Saturday said Bangladeshi UN peacekeepers deployed in various countries are helping Bangladesh diplomatically by strengthening ties with the host countries.

“The role of our peacekeepers is helping develop our relationship with the host countries,” said the foreign minister, who is currently visiting South Sudan.

Dr Momen made the remarks while visiting the Bangladesh contingent (BANBATT 4) deployed in the Wau province of South Sudan on Friday, a foreign ministry press release said.    

While lauding the commendable contributions of the Bangladesh peacekeepers on the UN peacekeeping missions, the minister appreciated peacekeepers who are engaged in welfare work apart from peacekeeping activities.   

The Bangladesh peacekeepers informed the foreign minister that they are engaged in social development and welfare work in Wau, such as providing medicine and veterinary assistance to the local people.

The governor highly acclaimed the role of Bangladesh peacekeepers and lauded the humane services offered by them in Wau.

He expressed their desire to establish cooperation between Wau province and Bangladesh in different areas, such as education, ICT and agriculture.

The governor suggested that more female personnel be deployed in the Bangladesh contingent.

The Bangladesh non-resident ambassador to South Sudan and Deputy Force Commander of the UNMISS were present.

Upon his arrival at the UNMISS compound, the foreign minister was presented with a guard of honour by a smart contingent of the Bangladesh peacekeepers.  

The Bangladesh contingent organized spectacular fits, which were displayed by Bangladesh peacekeeping members. Both male and female performers displayed their acrobatic and defensive skills.
