Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Monday said that Singapore will recruit 10,000 Bangladeshis while Romania will recruit 2,000 Bangladeshis soon.

"This is good news indeed," he told reporters at his office in Dhaka. 

The foreign minister said he will visit the US and will have series of meetings including one with US Secretary of State Antony J Blinken.

Dr Momen said the meeting with the US secretary of state will be held on Wednesday (Bangladesh time).

"I'm leaving for the USA tonight (Monday)," furthered Dr Momen.

He said there is no specific issue but they will have a broad-based discussion as the US recently got a new administration.

"We want to develop solid relations with the US," added the minister.

The foreign minister said that Indian External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar will visit Bangladesh soon to take forward the relations between the two countries.
