US Ambassador to Bangladesh Peter Haas on Wednesday hosted a reception at his residence for the members of the Diplomatic Correspondents Association, Bangladesh (DCAB).
He explained that he wanted to show his gratitude for the work that the diplomatic correspondents perform in Bangladesh.
“Yours is a noble profession, and increasingly, around the world, it is a difficult and dangerous one,” Ambassador Haas told the members of DCAB.
He said journalists play a critical role every day in strengthening democratic institutions by informing their fellow citizens of the events happening in their countries. "This role is more important now than ever.”
Foreign diplomats from other missions attended the event.
