Issues related to climate change, Rohingya repatriation, regional crisis and removal of the name of Bangladesh from the Covid red-list will dominate the fourth Bangladesh-United Kingdom strategic dialogue to be held in London on Thursday.

The Bangladesh delegation will be headed by Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen while his British counterpart, Foreign and Commonwealth Permanent Under-Secretary Philip Barton, will lead his side. 

The previous dialogue was held in May, 2019 in Dhaka.

Both the sides will have detailed discussions on the entire gamut of bilateral issues, including post-Brexit relationship, especially trade and commerce, vaccine, investment, education and skills, good governance and human rights, the future development partnership, migration and security and defence cooperation.

They will also talk about regional and international matters of mutual interest, with particular reference to the situation in Afghanistan.

In the lead up to COP26 to be held in Scotland in November, the issue of climate change will dominantly feature during the discussions. 

Dhaka will share its agenda for COP26 and will ask the London, the chair of the United Nations event, to do more for Bangladesh in its fight to address the challenges posed by climate change.

Bangladesh will also ask the UK, a permanent member of the UN Security Council, to do all it can to help solve the protracted Rohingya crisis, a serious cause for concern for the country as well as the region.
