PM reaffirms support for Palestinians

UNB

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday reaffirmed Bangladesh's unwavering support for the rights of Palestinian people to their self-determination and independence, reports UNB. "Bangladesh always supports the cause of Palestine and it’ll continue to do so," she said when Palestinian Foreign Minister Dr Riad NA Malki met her at her official residence Ganobhaban in the evening. Sheikh Hasina also said there is a special place in the hearts of people in Bangladesh for Palestinians.
PM's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting.
The Palestinian foreign minister lauded Bangladesh's strong support to Palestine, saying, "You (Hasina) are always vocal against Israeli atrocities in our country. We're happy Bangladesh always extends strong support to us."
The Prime Minister said she always raised voice when Palestinian women and children were killed by Israeli occupation forces.
During the meeting, Dr Malki presented some copies of the book -- Unfinished Memoirs of Bangabandhu -- translated into Arabic to the Prime Minister.
He said they have published the book in Arabic and are distributing its copies to other Arab countries. "We've also requested other Arab nations to publish the book. If necessary, we could supply the books," he said.
Hasina handed over a book with her autograph to the Palestinian foreign minister for their President Mahmud Abbas. She also presented a book with autograph to Dr Malki.
The Palestinian foreign minister paid rich tributes to Bangabandhu, saying the people of his country hold the great leader in high esteem. "What Bangabandhu did for his people is unique," he said. He also recalled Bangabandhu's special friendship with Palestinian legendary leader Yasser Arafat.
