FM Momen writes to Blinken seeking removal of sanctions


Dhaka, Jan 02: Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has written a long letter to his US counterpart Antony J. Blinken on a number of issues including a call to “waive sanctions” on RAB, its current and former senior officials.

“This is vitally important that we begin to work on a priority basis to find ways and means to waive sanctions,” Dr Momen wrote in his letter sent on December 24 where he had referred the candid discussions he had with Blinken that gave Bangladesh the hope that the issue would be resolved “quickly with due seriousness”.
