Bangladesh-US relations
US Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken has described this year, marking the 50th anniversary of Bangladesh-US diplomatic relations, as a milestone in the partnership between the two countries.

Recently in a letter to the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh, Blinken said the close cooperation between the two countries is commendable in protecting our people from the scourge of terrorism, human trafficking, and illicit drug trafficking.

Blinken welcomed the continuation of the dialogue on labor rights, religious freedom, human rights, and democratic good governance, highlighting key issues in the Biden administration's foreign policy.

The United States and Bangladesh will continue to work closely on strengthening economic ties, investing in development, addressing the challenges of climate change, regional security, peacekeeping operations, and finding a lasting solution to Myanmar's Rohingya, the letter said.

Blinken said the United States has stood by the people of Bangladesh by providing 70 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the two countries partnership. He hoped that Bangladesh-US relations would reach a unique height in the next 50 years.
