Outgoing US Ambassador Marcia Bernicat yesterday held a meeting with Foreign Secretary M Shahidul Haque where they discussed political and Rohingya issues with special focus on the upcoming United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), reports UNB.

They discussed about the UN Security Council and Rohingya issue, Bernicat told reporters after the meeting at the foreign secretary's office.

Responding to a question, she said the US focuses on a free, fair and credible election likely to be held in December. It will help Bangladeshi people to express their will.

And details will be worked out among all the parties involved and the government, she said. She also noted that the government is committed to holding a free, fair and credible election.

Bernicat said there will be a whole series of issues in the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 73) that will open on September 18. She is scheduled to leave Dhaka next month completing her tenure in Bangladesh as the US Ambassador. The first day of the high-level General Debate will be on September 25 and is scheduled to last for nine working days.

Maria Fernanda Espinosa Garces, President-elect of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), announced in July 2018 that the theme of the general debate will be, 'Making the United Nations Relevant to All People: Global Leadership and Shared Responsibilities for Peaceful, Equitable and Sustainable Societies.'
