Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Tuesday said both enemies and pressure keep rising on a country when it demonstrates better performance in terms of overall development.
“A country makes some enemies when that particular country achieves development. Pressure also keeps growing in that country. The same thing happens if you do better than some of your colleagues,” he told reporters after attending a function in the city.
Asked whether the government is feeling pressure from the US, Dr Momen said they (US admin) are functioning as per their rules and there is no problem at the government level. “They’re doing their job and we’re doing our job.”
The Foreign Minister said there are some people in the USA while some people here who do not like the development of Bangladesh -- why the Awami League government is doing so well and why people in the country are living happily.
Dr Momen said some people have continuously been discussing with the US lawmakers and providing false information and making videos.
When someone is killed here it is termed as “extrajudicial killing” and when someone is killed in the USA, it is described as “died in the line of duty”.
Commenting on those who are providing false information, Dr Momen said many of them possibly are paid for that (provide false info).”
