Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen, the chair of Commonwealth Ministerial Group on Guyana, on Tuesday reaffirmed the proposal of the group for peaceful settlement of the dispute between Guyana and Venezuela through the intervention of the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

''Bangladesh looks forward to steering the Commonwealth Ministerial Group on Guyana to reach a peaceful settlement of disputes through dialogue and international adjudication which also is in line with Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's visionary foreign policy doctrine," he said.

The foreign minister attended the virtual meeting for the second time during his tenure as the chairman.

Bangladesh took over the chairmanship from South Africa for this Ministerial Group in October last year.

Momen reiterated firm and unswerving support for the maintenance and preservation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Guyana.

He assured that Bangladesh would steer the deliberations of this Ministerial Group's work towards a peaceful settlement of the territorial dispute between Guyana-Venezuela.
