Israel as a country
Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen said, "We do not recognize Israel as a country, so if any Bangladeshi goes to that country, he will be punished."

He said this while addressing a function at Padma, the state guest house in the capital, on Wednesday, May 26.

A gift of medicine was handed over to the Palestinians. Palestinian Ambassador to Dhaka Yousef SY Ramadan, Foreign Secretary Masood bin Momen, Beacon Pharmaceuticals MD Ebadul Karim were also present on the occasion.

Mr. Momen said Bangladesh is a tested friend of Palestine. We have been by their side since 1972.

"We do not recognize Israel as a country," he said.

"As long as we do not recognize, no Bangladeshi will be able to go there. Any Bangladeshi who goes there will be punished."

Dr. Momen said some media outlets in Bangladesh are creating confusion over passport amendments. However, our position on Israel is very clear.

At the ceremony, medicines worth TK. 4 million were given to Palestine. These materials will be provided to the victims of the recent Israeli attack on Palestine.
