Visiting Brazilian Foreign Minister Mauro Vieira has said Bangladesh people reelected Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina once again due to her hard work for improving the living standards of her countrymen.

“Sheikh Hasina has worked very hard to increase the quality of life of the people of Bangladesh and promote the development of the country,” he said while responding to a question from a reporter after holding bilateral talks with Bangladesh foreign minister Dr Hasan Mahmud in the capital on Sunday.. 
He said the Bangladesh Premier and Brazilian President Lula had a wonderful meeting last year, and they built a very good personal relationship.
The Brazilian foreign minister said Brasilia and Dhaka have similar kinds of social and development issues, like poverty reduction, to address.
“We have similar positions in many aspects, such as the fight against poverty, equality in hunger, and promoting social development. So, we have similar agendas, which will allow us to work together,” he said.
The Brazilian foreign minister said during the meeting they discussed all issues and tried to figure out new ways and new avenues of cooperation in the new areas of balanced trade.
Vieira brought an invitation from Brazilian President Lula to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to visit Brazil. 
The Brazilian foreign minister, who is scheduled to call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday morning, said that his country’s president hoped that the Bangladesh premier would visit Brazil soon.
In 2023, President Lula and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina met on the sidelines of the BRICS Summit in South Africa.
Brazil is keen to continue deepening relations with Bangladesh in favour of the development of both countries, the promotion of South-South cooperation, and the fight against poverty, hunger, and the climate crisis.
