Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Friday said it is the American politics to keep countries under pressure with different issues like democracy, good governance and terrorism.
"If there's any weakness (in our democracy), we'll try to address it. Let's think how we can do that," he told reporters, noting that there is nothing to worry about for not being invited by the United States for its Summit for Democracy.
After visiting the under construction export cargo complex of Osmani International Airport in Sylhet, Dr Momen said the US wants to keep countries under pressure while talking about democracy, good governance and terrorism. "That's their politics. So, nothing to be worried about whether you’re being invited or not."
On Thursday, Dr Momen said Bangladesh maintains a "very stable and transparent" democracy and the US might have invited those countries with weak democracies for its Summit for Democracy.
"We've had a stable democracy over the last several years, a very clear and transparent democracy. Free and fair voting is happening," he said.
Dr Momen said there is nothing to be worried as the people of Bangladesh will work for further strengthening the democracy, if required.
He said the US itself faced problems in the recent past despite being an old democracy.
Since day one, the Biden-Harris Administration has made it clear that renewing democracy in the United States and around the world is essential to meet the unprecedented challenges of time.
President Joe Biden stated on the International Day of Democracy, “No democracy is perfect, and no democracy is ever final. Every gain made, every barrier broken, is the result of determined, unceasing work.”
On December 9-10, President Biden will host the first of two Summits for Democracy, which will bring together leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector to set forth an affirmative agenda for democratic renewal and to tackle the greatest threats faced by democracies today through collective action.
