Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has met with his British counterpart James Cleverly Saturday at the sidelines of the second day of the 18th IISS Manama Dialogue in Bahrain.

They discussed a number of issues of mutual interest, including climate change, human rights, social justice, democracy, the Russo-Ukraine war, and the Rohingya crisis, said the Foreign Ministry on Sunday.

Momen congratulated Cleverly on his reappointment as the Foreign Secretary of the UK and recalled the support that Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman received from the UK, particularly from the then Conservative Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath during Bangladesh’s Liberation War in 1971.

Both the ministers also reaffirmed the excellent relations between Bangladesh and the UK based on shared values, beliefs, and cultures of the people of both nations.
