Bangladesh donates medical supply to Sri Lanka
Bangladesh on Thursday donated medical supplies of Taka 20 crore to Sri Lanka as per Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's direction to support the South Asian neighbor that was hit by worst economic crisis, reports BSS.

Of the supply, Bangladesh government and local private entrepreneurs each provided Taka 10 crore worth medical products as gesture of friendship and good neighborly relations.

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen and Health Minister Zahid Maleque handed over few boxes of medicine as a token to the Sri Lankan High Commissioner to Bangladesh Prof Sudharshan DS Seneviratne at a ceremony held at the State Guest House Padma.

Bangladesh Association of Pharmaceuticals Industries (BAPI) President Nazmul Hassan and Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen also present on the occasion.

Dr. Momen termed the offer of medicine, as the expression of solidarity and friendship between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, at a time when the two countries are celebrating 50 years of diplomatic relations.

He said under the able leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Bangladesh never hesitates to extend assistance to any nation in difficulties, in particular, to its neighbors for ensuring shared peace and prosperity in the South Asian region.

He said this donation would certainly manifests capability of the pharmaceuticals industries in terms of its ability in producing high quality medicine, financial capacity and it also demonstrates Bangladesh's foreign policy resolve of maintaining friendly and cooperative relations with her neighbors.

The foreign minister assured that Bangladesh stands ready to support Sri Lanka in all possible ways.

The Sri Lankan High Commissioner expressed gratitude of the government of Sri Lanka to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the government of Bangladesh for this friendly gesture of supplying medicine for the people of Sri Lanka.

He noted that Sri Lanka values the friendly relationship with Bangladesh and committed to further strengthening it in the coming days.

The envoy called the gifting of the medicines, another demonstration that the trajectory of the bilateral relations was moving in the right direction.

The medicine is expected to reach Sri Lanka within few days.

Earlier, Bangladesh supported Sri Lanka by providing US 200 million dollars through currency swapping arrangement.

BD needs to send a delegation of Pharma representatives to Lanka. They will come out of the current crisis as tourists return. We need to be in a position to exploit the situation then.

FTA/PTA is not going to do much for BD under normal circumstances with trade in favor of lanka. This is the time for BD to push for favorable concessions to address the imbalance.

That it is - but we should help in other areas too. They stopped exams because they needed paper. Unthinkable how bad their situation is.
Yes, you are right. BD produces almost enough good quality papers. The GoB should think of donating a few hundred tons of paper to SL as well.

BD must be benevolent to SL at its precarious moment.

Sri Lanka has consistently been much wealthier than BD yet look at the situation they are in now.
This should serve as warning for Bangladeshis especially for the few arrogant ones here who think Bangladesh is some sort of economic powerhouse already.
Eating a humble pie, acknowledging deficiencies and working to address them is how a country develops in a sustainable manner.

Why we are donating to a Rohingya Genocide supporting country? They can get help from their dear Buddhist brother burma...
1. Sri Lanka never officially sided with Burma on this issue. Radical Buddhist nutcases do not run the Sri Lankan government.
2. We cannot pursue foreign policy based on pettiness over the past.
3. You can hardly find any non-Muslim majority country where Muslims are not disliked. Instead of crying and whinging all the time we should sometimes look in the mirror and work to improve our image. Muslim countries helping out non-Muslim countries is a good start.

You being a two flagged black/ chocolate-color Englishman, I thought you understand the true meaning of the word, "exploit".

The meaning of this word is to make use of a situation in a way considered unfair or underhand.

Please refrain from using such words for a country that is going through economic hardships.

Tens of western countries send help in billions of dollars every year all the time to a poor Bangladesh without seeking to exploit it.

Geopolitics has nothing to do with helping your neighbors. SL did not bully the Rohingya. Moreover, they are not our people, they are Burmese Muslims.

By the way, people should also need to know what the Rohingya people did on the Arakanese Buddhists before they were expelled so as they do not repeat the same. Please read more about Rohingya misdeeds, also.

I think my grasp of english is somewhat better than yours. It is a verb and a noun and its meaning depends on how it is used.

You on the other hand is an uneducated hindutva clown who is this forums laughing stock.

You try but lack the basic knowledge of how geopolitics work. Go spread your hindutva islamaphobic nonsense elsewhere.... no one is buying it here.

Why do you think you understand English more than I do? You do not know even the meaning of the word, 'exploit'.

Now, consult a dictionary to understand the word, "exploit" and come back.

You are a heinous person without a trace of humanity suggesting to EXPLOIT other countries' difficulties. And when I protest, you answer with bullying.

You lost the argument and now again coming with Hidutva slogan, bloody mountain-living Taliban!!

Listen dumbass why dont you put up a screenshot from any dictionary on the internet that states the word exploit has sole negative connotation. You would win your argument then easily.

You can not because you are an uneducated halfwit or have figured it out but still carrying on with a lost argument because your pride wont let you admit you are wrong.

Every word you utter showcases your monumental stupidity.

Whatever labor job you do, why don't you get rid of your unpolished cockney labor class English in this forum and learn proper English with correct grammar?

And don't pretend you had a proper education.

সেটাই, শ্রীলংকার প্রতি হঠাৎ এত পীড়িত উথলে উঠল কেন বুঝি না। ফকিন্নি দেশটিকে টাকা ধার দেয়, আবার এখন ওষুধ দিচ্ছে।
