The EU and Bangladesh met for their fourth Diplomatic Consultations in Brussels

The European Union (EU) has raised concern over the Digital Security Act (DSA), expressing worries that some of its provisions risk going beyond the stated purpose of fighting digital crimes.

It also enquired about certain ongoing trials in this context and encouraged Bangladesh to implement the recommendations made during the last Universal Periodic Review.

The EU and Bangladesh met for their fourth Diplomatic Consultations in Brussels recently and discussed the issues.

The Bangladesh side provided updates and shared its perspectives in this regard, and both sides agreed on the need to strengthen democratic governance in the post-Covid-19 recovery and condemned communal or sectarian violence and discrimination in any form or manifestation, anywhere.

The Bangladesh delegation was led by Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen while the EU delegation was led by the European External Action Service Managing Director for Asia and the Pacific Gunnar Wiegand.

Democracy and human rights are shared values between Bangladesh and the EU, according to the joint press statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday.

Both sides agreed to work on this common agenda with a view to reaching concrete progress and deliverables, which will be reviewed in the course of the next consultations, to be held in Dhaka in 2023.
