Bangladesh will be happy to see stability in the neighbouring countries
Foreign Minister Dr A K Abdul Momen on Thursday said Bangladesh would welcome the new Indian government, no matter who comes to power, as Bangladesh maintains good relations with all Indian political parties.
"We will welcome anyone who comes to power," he told reporters at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when media reports suggested that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) stunned its opposition with a massive election win, reports UNB.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the first foreign leader who congratulated Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina soon after the re-election of her ruling Awami League in Bangladesh's last general election.
"We have very good relations with the BJP," said the foreign minister.
"So, if he (Modi) comes (to power), we will welcome him in the same manner," he said.
Bangladesh will be happy to see stability in the neighbouring countries, he added.
The foreign minister said Bangladesh is on a development trajectory and moving towards higher development and laid emphasis on stability in the region.
"At this stage, we want a stable government in every neighbouring country of South Asia," he said.
