Bangladesh has sought the support of the United States for the readymade garment (RMG) sector that has been affected badly by the cancellation of orders owing to the outbreak of coronavirus.

The US is the single largest RMG export destination of Bangladesh.

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen asked for the help when US ambassador in Bangladesh Earl Miler handed over to him a letter of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the Foreign Ministry on Monday.

Dr Momen underscored how the economy and livelihood of Bangladeshi people have adversely been affected in this COVID-19 pandemic. 

In the letter to the foreign minister, US secretary of state Mike Pompeo appreciated Bangladesh’s readiness to combat Covid-19 and assured to work together in this regard.

Pompeo also praised Bangladesh’s assistance in repatriation of American citizens.

During the meeting with the US envoy, Dr Momen elaborated the government’s strategies in tackling the fight against Covid-19 and expressed to work closely with Washington in the coming days to face global challenges.

He also requested an expedited deportation of Rashed Chowdhury, the self confessed killer of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, as it remains a priority for the government. 

They further discussed the protracted Rohingya crisis and the US ambassador assured of continued support on the matter.
