In a message to President Abdul Hamid on Wednesday, Guterres said, "Each member of the United Nations has its unique culture and history - - diversity that enriches our organisation and our world. Your country's engagement in the work of the United Nations across the international agenda is extremely important."
"This year, the first decade of action for Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) we must raise our collective ambition to build a fair globalisation that works for all and take decisive climate action," he said.
In all theses, Guterres said, he looks forward to the contributions and support of Bangladesh in the pursuit of a more peaceful, just and sustainable world for all.
