The foreign minister termed Bangladesh-Russia ties a special one

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Sunday sought Russian support in early repatriation of forcibly displaced persecuted Rohingya from Bangladesh to their land of origin in the Rakhine state of Myanmar.         

He made the urge while newly appointed Russian ambassador to Bangladesh Alexander Vikentyevich Mantytskiy called on him at the foreign ministry in Dhaka, a press release said.  

Welcoming the new envoy, Momen expected that the Russian foreign minister would visit Bangladesh to attend the inauguration of the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant in 2023.

As the Russian ambassador proposed to celebrate 50-year diplomatic ties between Bangladesh and Russia together, Momen said that the two countries could chalk out the joint program marking the milestone.       

The foreign minister termed Bangladesh-Russia ties a special one and said the countrymen recalled the Russian support during the country's great liberation war as well as its rebuilding efforts after the war.

He also recalled that Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had visited Russia in March of 1972, just after the independence of the country, to express his gratitude to the Russian government and its people for their support during the Liberation War of Bangladesh.
