Bangladesh to work with those countries helping advancement: PM Sheikh Hasina

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday said Bangladesh would rather work with those countries which will help in Dhaka’s journey towards development and prosperity not taking into consideration who engages in war with whom.

“I first consider the development of my country. I will move ahead with those who will help us in our country’ development,” she said, adding that in that case, Bangladesh will not see which country is engaging in war with whom.

The prime minister was distributing awards among the first, second and third winners in several categories in the national level competition of making a one-minute video documentary titled “Amar Chokhe Bangabandhu” (Bangabandhu in my eyes) at her official Ganabhaban residence this morning.

Sheikh Hasina also reiterated her country’s stance that Bangladesh doesn’t want war rather want peace.

“We want friendship with all and we are advancing maintaining friendly relations with all,” she said.

The prime minister called upon all to remain alert as none can push the country back and make it again the country of beggars.

“None can pull us back. Bangladesh became a nation of the beggars after August 15, 1975 changeover. We always have to be alert. We have to take the country forward,” she said.

Earlier, the premier distributed certificates, crests and award money among the winners of the competition at the different categories from school to intermediate level students.

Cabinet Secretary Md Mahbub Hossain was present.
