Foreign Minister Hasan Mahmud has thanked the Egyptian government for their timely support in facilitating the delivery of three consignments of humanitarian assistance sent by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for the distressed Palestine people in Gaza.

He conveyed the gratitude when Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt Omar Mohie Eldin Ahmed Fahmy met him at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday, reports UNB.

Minister Hasan also requested the Egyptian Ambassador as a member of both Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and Arab League to raise a strong voice to achieve a ceasefire to avoid further casualties of civilians in Gaza especially on women and children.

The ambassador congratulated the minister for assuming the office of the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh.

Both of them discussed the areas of bilateral cooperation between the two countries particularly in the jute sector.

They also underscored the importance of more engagements of Bangladesh and Egypt to take the relationship to a new height.

During the meeting, both the minister and the ambassador emphasised on high-level visits from both sides and the holding of the second round of Foreign Office Consultations, scheduled to be held in Cairo, as soon as possible.
