Argentina opens embassy in Bangladesh 27 Feb

Argentina is set to open an embassy in Bangladesh on 27 February, sources said.

Argentina's Foreign Minister Santiago will come to Dhaka on February 26 on a three-day visit. He will inaugurate the embassy in Dhaka on 27 February.

During the visit, besides inaugurating the embassy, he will pay a courtesy call to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Apart from this, he will meet Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen and Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi.

Bangladesh has strongly supported the Argentina football team for a long time. However, during the recently concluded World Cup in Qatar, the passion of the people of Bangladesh towards the Argentina team caught the attention of the world.

After Argentina won the World Cup football title in December last year, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina sent a congratulatory letter to the country's President Alberto Fernandez.

In response, Argentine President Alberto wrote back thanking Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

In the letter, Alberto said, he believes that the people of the two countries will be bound by the bonds of brotherhood and harmony by establishing the embassy of Argentina in Dhaka in 2023.
