Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Saber Hossain Chowdhury on Sunday said bilateral relations between Bangladesh and the US will be stronger in the coming days based on environmental and climate actions.

“These are priority areas for the United States, so the US wants to cooperate with us in programs to combat climate change," the minister said to the media after meeting with Afreen Akhter, deputy assistant secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs at the US Department of State, at his office in the Bangladesh Secretariat.

The minister said: "We talked about how they will cooperate in meeting our needs in the light of environment and climate change. We want to establish a new platform by forming a fund of $15 billion to combat climate change. All our development partners can help there.

“I am optimistic, America will be too. They will keep our needs in mind in the US plan. We discussed how Bangladesh-US relations can be further strengthened in the future,” he added.

The discussions underscored the importance of collaborative efforts between the United States and Bangladesh in addressing environmental challenges, tackling climate change, preserving natural resources, and promoting sustainable development. Both parties reaffirmed their commitment to working together to address environmental challenges and ensure the sustainable benefit of present and future generations for the region.
