Newly-appointed Permanent Representative to UN, Geneva, Mustafizur Rahman presents his letter of credentials

Dhaka has urged the United Nations to play a more proactive role to find an acceptable solution at the earliest to the protracted Rohingya crisis that has been affecting Bangladesh in a bad manner for a long time.

Bangladesh’s newly-appointed Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva Mustafizur Rahman made the call while presenting his letter of credentials to Tatiana Valovaya, director-general of the UN, Geneva, on Monday.

Permanent representative Rahman also apprised the UN’s top official in Geneva of the different activities undertaken by the Bangladesh government to combat Covid-19 pandemic.

Projecting the successes of the country in socioeconomic issues achieved in over a decade, he highlighted continued GDP growth, education, health, women empowerment, food security and steps taken to tackle the adverse effects of climate change.

On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the UN, Rahman praised the global body for its contribution to development, human rights, and establishing world peace and security.

Under the current world situation, the necessity of the UN is being felt anew, he observed. The permanent representative thanked the UN for its contribution to Bangladesh’s development journey and reiterated the country’s continued support for the global body.

Welcoming the permanent representative to Geneva, Director-General Valovaya laid emphasis on continuing the implementation of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) in a post-Covid world.     

Earlier on September 23, Rahman, who was the country’s high commissioner to Singapore prior to his new assignment, presented his credentials to the Deputy Director General of World Trade Organization, Yi Xiaozhun.
