US respects Bangladesh’s sovereignty and right to make foreign policy decisions for itself

Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State Ned Price

Ned Price, Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State, has said that the United States have taken note of the statement from the Chinese ambassador to Bangladesh about Quad.

Responding to a question at a regular press briefing in Washington DC on Tuesday said that the US respect Bangladesh’s sovereignty, and they respect Bangladesh’s right to make foreign policy decisions for itself.

“We have an incredibly strong relationship with Bangladesh. We work closely with our partners there on a range of issues, from economic growth to climate change to humanitarian issues,” he said.

“And when it comes to the Quad, we’ve said this before, but the Quad, it’s an informal, essential, multilateral mechanism that right now conveys – convenes likeminded democracies – the United States, India, Australia, and Japan – to coordinate in the Indo-Pacific, and fundamentally, to push forward our goal of a free and open Indo-Pacific region.”
