Momen for international cooperation to improve worldwide Covid situation
Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen emphasized strong cooperation among the nations to improve the ongoing Covid-19 situation across the world, including in Bangladesh.
"We must extend cooperation to the best of our abilities. Through cooperation, we can certainly minimize the sufferings," he said.
The foreign minister remarked while receiving 50 10L Oxygen Concentrators and 1.5m surgical masks as a donation from Singapore Red Cross Society at the state guest house, Padma, yesterday afternoon.
Dr Momen said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is keen to maintain a proper balance between life and livelihood while managing Covid-19. In that regard, Bangladesh's Covid response has been more successful than many other countries, Momen added.
"Bangladesh is still trying to take more healthcare measures in anticipation and is determined to improve the situation through cooperation with friendly countries," he said.
He thanked the Singapore government and Singapore Red Cross Society for the medical supplies as the need for oxygen concentrators is very critical now.
"Today's event marks a new milestone of bilateral cooperation between Bangladesh and Singapore," he said.
