Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has said Saarc should unite member states to collectively address the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

"We must leverage the available trade and investment, public health and security mechanisms, and tools of Saarc to reap multifaceted benefits from this forum," he said.

Dr Momen also said Bangladesh remains strongly committed to working closely with all friendly countries of Saarc, maintaining the congenial atmosphere of friendship and cooperation. 

The foreign minister made the remarks in his message on Saarc Charter Day 2020.

Dr Momen reiterated his sincere wishes for the continued peace, progress and prosperity of the people of the Saarc member states. 

He also offered greetings to the Saarc secretary general, members of the Saarc secretariat and Saarc specialized bodies, Saarc regional centers and other entities affiliated with Saarc on this special occasion.  

As a founding member of Saarc, Bangladesh recognises Saarc’s immense potential, prospects and opportunities for the sustainable socioeconomic development of South Asian region, Dr Momen said. 

"Born in Bangladesh as the legacy of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s vision for regional cooperation, Saarc has emerged as a full-bloomed regional organization with a considerable number of effective specialized bodies, regional centres, apex and recognized bodies," he added.

Dr Momen also said: "As we celebrate the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation and the architect of Bangladesh’s Independence this year, we further reaffirm our strong commitment to strengthening the Saarc Forum as a common platform for meaningful regional cooperation in South Asia."

He said Saarc is expected to deliver wider benefits for the peoples of South Asian region by overcoming the challenges it is faced with.
