Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Sunday urged the students of Palestine and Jordan who have obtained MBBS and other degrees from Bangladesh to uphold the development image of Bangladesh to others.
The minister also called them goodwill ambassadors of Bangladesh.
He said these in a video message given at a reception organized in honor of Palestinian and Jordanian students who have obtained MBBS and other higher degrees from Bangladesh recently at the initiative of the Bangladesh Embassy in Jordan's Amman.
Momen said, "Bangladesh has always been supporting the Palestine issue and Jordan".
He said to the students that you have got the opportunity to know Bangladesh better than the citizens of many other countries. As you have spent the most important time of your life in Bangladesh you will always be considered as true friends of us and believe that you will be by our side in any situation, Momen hoped.
Ambassador Nahida Sobhan welcomed everyone at the beginning of the event and said that Bangladesh has a historical relationship with Palestine and Jordan. She also said that Bangladesh is now being considered as a "role model" of development in various fields including education, health, agriculture, information, technology, women's empowerment, under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. She urged all those who completed their education from Bangladesh to illustrate the real image of Bangladesh to the world.
A video on the development and culture of Bangladesh was screened on the occasion.
