US keen to deepen partnership with Bangladesh

US acting Deputy Assistant Secretary at Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs Scott Urbom said Bangladesh has been an important partner of the USA for over 50 years, investing billions of dollar in Bangladesh’s health, education and other sectors, reports UNB.

“We look forward to deepening the partnership with Bangladesh in the next 50 years and beyond,” he said while speaking at a programme organised by the Bangladesh Embassy in Washington.

Scott Urbom said the Mother Language Day holds special place in the hearts of not only the people of Bangladesh, also the people of all over the world.

He also mentioned the sacrifice of those heroes who shed blood to establish the nation of Bangladesh and preserve the Bangla language.

Urbom said today Bangla ranks one of the most well-spoken languages in the world, and it is the testament to Bangla language’s influence and importance of connecting Bengali speakers around the world.

The Bangladesh Embassy in Washington DC observed “Mohan Shahid Dibosh” and the International Mother Language Day on Wednesday by recalling the supreme sacrifice of the martyrs of the 1952 Language Movement.    

To commemorate the historic day, the embassy arranged a daylong programme by paying glowing tributes to the language heroes who laid down their lives in Dhaka 72 years ago to establish Bangla as the state language.

As part of the program, a colourful function was held at the auditorium of the mission in the evening in the presence of ambassadors, diplomats from various countries, senior officials of the US government and the members of Bangladeshi diaspora.

Bangladesh Ambassador to the United States Muhammad Imran delivered the welcome remarks.

In his remarks, Imran paid deepest homage to the martyrs of the great Language Movement and Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
