Live Correspondent: Four ambassadors and two high commissioners to Bangladesh separately presented their credentials to President M Abdul Hamid at Bangabhaban here this afternoon.
All of them are non-resident envoys. They are Andrei I. Rzheussky, ambassador of the Republic of Belarus, Sekou Kasse, ambassador of the Republic of Mali, Carlos Jose de Pinho e Melo, ambassador of Portugal, Gudmundur Arni Atefansson, ambassador of Iceland, Agis Loizou, high commissioner of the Republic of Cyprus and Gabriel P. Sinimbo, high commissioner of the Republic of Namibia.
Welcoming the envoys, the President hoped that the bilateral relations with those countries would further expand during the tenures of their respective assignments here, President’s Press Secretary Joynal Abedin told BSS after the meetings.
Noting that Bangladesh has bright possibilities in different areas, especially tourism, readymade garments (RMG) and medicine sectors, the President urged the diplomats to give optimum efforts for exploring the existing potentials for the benefits of their respective countries.
The head of the state also urged the non-resident ambassadors and high commissioners to ensure frequent visits to different tourist sites, including the world’s largest sea beach and mangrove forest, in Bangladesh.
