Speakers highlighted the necessity of Bangladesh - India close relations and expressed that we share history, heritage and culture and remembered 1971 Liberation War when we gave blood together. Speakers also said that during Liberation War, China worked against the interests of Bangladesh and supported Pakistan, who is still patronising terrorist and militants in this region and China is the supporter of Pakistan. Beijing is tryimg to become new chief guest in our country with the help of some Pakisthan owned blood but people of Bangladesh are generous they will protect all their ill motives.
On the other hand, Uighur Muslims are being persecuted in China. Eleven Lacs Rohingas had to leave Myanmar due to persecution of Myanmar security forces supported by China.
China's expansionist policy and ambition for territory are going against the peace and tranquility of South Asia and SE Asia. It is not obeying the verdict of International Tribunals regarding South China Sea. The present Government headed by Sheikh Hasina is working to solve the problems regarding Covid- 19 and we are cooperating.There are irregularities in some cases and hope it will be solved. A medical team from China is currently on visit to Bangladesh. We know in last few years our medical systems have been developed to give services to the people. A section of the people is going outside for treatment.
In most of the cases, they are going to India for treatment and few people are going to Singapore, Bangkok, USA and Europe. So, we don't need Chinese team's expertise rather they didn't go for quarantine on arrival which is against health protocol. We hope that all the democratic and social forces will work together to further strengthen the relationship of Bangladesh and India. Bangladesh - India will work for peace and tranquility in the Indo-Pacific region as well as in the world.
