Foreign Minister’s Recent Visit to UK


The diplomatic relations between Bangladesh and the United Kingdom (UK) have reached fifty years this year. The UK was the first country in Europe to recognize the newly independent nation which encouraged other European countries to follow.

The Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman visited the UK on his way to Bangladesh after he was released from the Pakistani prison in 1972. It was a clear indication of how Bangladesh-UK relations would turn out in the coming days. The recent visit of Bangladesh’s Foreign Minister to Portsmouth, UK is just a continuation of what Bangabandhu started. This visit will no doubt strengthen the trade, social and educational cooperation between the countries.
