High Commissioner-designate of Pakistan to Bangladesh Imran Ahmed Siddiqui presented his credential to President M Abdul
Hamid at Bangabhaban here this afternoon.
Welcoming the envoy to Bangladesh, the President said following the foreign policy “Friendship towards all, malice towards none” adopted by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the country always maintains good relations with all.
President’s Press Secretary M Joynal Abedin told journalists after the meeting.
During the meet, the head of the state said Bangladesh is working to develop bilateral relation with all neighbouring countries in all aspects and it also believes in enhancing mutual cooperation regionally as well.
During the meeting, President Hamid said Bangladesh would celebrate the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman this year and the golden jubilee of the country’s independence in the next year in home and abroad, especially in Bangladesh missions, by holding different programmes.
The new High commissioner sought all-out cooperation in discharging his duties in Bangladesh and the President assured him of providing all necessary support to him.
Earlier, on his arrival at Bangabhaban, a smartly turned-out contingent of the horse-mounted President Guard Regiment (PGR) gave the envoy a guard of honour.
