CELEBRATION OF 50 YEARS’ RELATIONSHIP

Dhaka eyes boosting ties with friendly nations

DEEPAK ACHARJEE, Dhaka

The government is going to celebrate 50 years of relations with the friendly countries to boost friendship, sources in the foreign ministry have said. Already, the authorities concerned of Bangladesh have offered to some countries to celebrate 50 years of relations, the sources added.

The government is going to celebrate of 50 years of  relations with friendly countries at the time the government celebrates the 100th birthday of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 2020.

Talking to The Independent, a high official of the ministry of foreign affairs, choosing to remain anonymous, said the government had decided to celebrate 50 years of relations with countries that recognised Bangladesh as an independent state by 1975.

“We are trying to celebrate 50 years’ relations with the friendly countries from next year,” he said.

The official informed that they would offer to celebrate 50 years’ relations with United Kingdom (UK) at the third Bangladesh-UK strategic dialogue on April 24.

“If they accept, we will take steps to celebrate in Dhaka and London,” he informed. As of 1975, 39 countries gave recognition Bangladesh as an independent state. Bhutan was the first country to do so on December 6 in 1971, followed by India on December 6 the same year.

 After 48 years of the country’s independence, the United Nations had recognised Bangladesh as a developing country in the month of independence and on the day of Bangabandhu’s birthday in 2018.

 When contacted, Chairman of Heritage Foundation Ambassador Wali-ur Rahman told this correspondent that it was a good decision to hold such celebrations, but acceptance of the offer by the countries concerned had to be worked out.

 “In diplomatic history, celebration of golden jubilee does boost friendly relations but some countries like Japan and South Korea were doing this,” said Wali-ur Rahman, who is also a former foreign secretary.  After a nine months war, Bangladesh got its independence. After the independence, Bhutan and India in 1971 gave recognition to Bangladesh as an independent state and later 37 countries, mostly in 1972, gave their recognition officially.
