Palestinian ambassador Yousef SY Ramadan has highly appreciated prime minister Sheikh Hasina for her concern about the Palestinian people and expressing her solidarity with the just cause of Palestinians.

‘Sheikh Hasina is a household name in Palestine. The people of Palestine invariably love and respect prime minister Sheikh Hasina for her unflinching support for them,’ said the ambassador.

He appreciated continued support of Bangladesh and the empathy of Bangladeshi people for the oppressed occupied people of Palestine.

Foreign secretary Masud Bin Momen handed over a letter concerning the recent airstrikes unleashed by the Israeli military to Palestinian ambassador Yousef SY Ramadan from PM Sheikh Hasina addressed to Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday at his office.

The secretary conveyed the concern of PM Sheikh Hasina regarding the current development in Gaza.

Bangladesh appreciated the OIC Secretariat for convening an emergency meeting of the Council of Permanent Representative to the OIC and passing a resolution about the atrocities inflicted upon the civilians by the occupying forces.

The foreign secretary said OIC might convene an emergency meeting of OICFM or Al Quds Committee for a sustainable solution to the evolving situation.

He stressed that the latest development in Gaza may be taken to the UNGA or UNSC through the OIC Secretariat for a sustainable solution of the Palestinian crisis.
