What Foreign Minister says about US sanctions

Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has said that he has no idea whether the United States will impose any new sanctions on Bangladesh.

“I have no idea whether the US will impose any new ban on Bangladesh. They never tell us beforehand. America is imposing thousands of sanctions on almost every country. We hope America will come to its senses and not do this,” he said while replying to a question at a press conference organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday (May 22) regarding Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s visit to Qatar.

Regarding a news published by a national daily about a new sanction, Momen said, “They have given false information about new sanction. There is no reason for sanction in the country. It will be regretful if it happens.”

“The report said I worked as a Chinese lobbyist before becoming a minister. This is completely a lie. I have never worked for any Chinese company and was not a lobbyist. On contrary you can say that I have been in the US all my life and worked there,” he cited.
