Ambassador Ziauddin tells Congresswoman Harman
DIPLOMATIC CORRESPONDENT

Granting of duty free – quota free (DFQF) access of Bangladeshi products to the United States market will help curb the threat of extremism and terrorism in Bangladesh, said Bangladesh Ambassador to US Mohammad Ziauddin. The Ambassador made the remarks during a meeting with Congresswoman Jane Harman, Director, President and CEO of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, a Think Tank in Washington DC, on Friday, according to a press release forwarded by the Bangladesh Embassy in Washington yesterday.
“If Bangladesh gets the DFQF access to the US market, there will be more garments factories in Bangladesh employing more women. This will curb the threat of extremism and terrorism in Bangladesh,” stated the release quoting the envoy.
He stressed that the US should allow all LDCs to get DFQF access on the basis of justice and fair play. Ambassador Ziauddin and Jane Harman discussed various development achievements of Bangladesh, women empowerment, human rights, counter-terrorism, trade, DFQF issue etc. The envoy said that the people of Bangladesh are secular and traditionally people from all religion live in peace and harmony. In this connection, he informed that the present government has vowed zero tolerance against any form of extremism and terrorism and that Bangladesh is working closely with its neighbours, the United States and other friendly countries to eliminate terrorism and extremism.  Ziauddin said that the post 1975 military dictators systematically provided impunity to the killers of the Father of the Nation and deliberately reinstated the religious fanatics and anti-liberation forces in politics.
