Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is due to deliver her speech in the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Friday afternoon (NY time) focusing on world peace, stability and impacts of global warming.

“The main focus of Bangladesh is it wants peace and stability. We will say that peace and stability are most needed for the well-being of the common people,” said Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen at a press briefing here in New York on Thursday.

“We will say that the best way to get out of any kind of conflict is through dialogue and peaceful resolution,” he added.

Her speech will also highlight the climate issue, said Momen adding that Bangladesh expects those responsible for global warming will share the responsibility of rehabilitating the victims of climate change. Momen said the premier in her speech will also call for promoting multilateralism.

He said the PM will also highlight Bangladesh’s success in the management of Covid-19 becoming one of the top successful countries in the world in dealing with the pandemic.

The foreign minister said the Awami League government is gifting houses to the landless people across the country. "We are giving people a home and a life. We will show the world that we have done a very good job."
