Countries need to work together to fight pandemic
Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen emphasised strong cooperation among the nations to improve the ongoing Covid-19 situation across the world, including in Bangladesh.
"We must extend cooperation to the best of our abilities. Through cooperation, we can certainly minimise the sufferings," he said.
The foreign minister remarked while receiving 50 10L Oxygen Concentrators and 1.5m surgical masks as a donation from Singapore Red Cross Society at the state guest house, Padma, yesterday afternoon.
Momen said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was keen to maintain a proper balance between life and livelihood while managing Covid-19.
In this regard, Bangladesh's Covid response has been more successful than many other countries, Momen added.
"Bangladesh is still trying to take more healthcare measures in anticipation and is determined to improve the situation through cooperation with friendly countries," he said.
He thanked the Singapore government and Singapore Red Cross Society for the medical supplies as the need for oxygen concentrators is very critical now.
"Today's event marks a new milestone of bilateral cooperation between Bangladesh and Singapore," he said.
