Dhaka, BdChronicle:

The way, shown by Bangabandhu, has inspired Bangladesh to work at the global forefront for promoting ‘Culture of Peace’ through its leadership role in UN Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding.

Permanent Representative of Bangladesh to the UN Ambassador Masud Bin Momen said this while addressing at the general debate on United Nations High Level Forum on the Culture of Peace held at the General Assembly Hall at UN Headquarters on Thursday.

In his address, he recalled the greatest Bangalee of all times Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who had ingrained a ‘Culture of Peace’ into our foreign policy fundamentals.

Bangabandhu enunciated at the United Nations 42 years back narrating, “Friendship to all and malice towards none”, “peaceful settlement of disputes” and “renouncement of the use of force in international relations”.

Mentioning Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s role to promote the ‘Culture of Peace’, Ambassador Masud said, “Our Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has also upheld Bangabandhu’s ideals as a central tenet of her governance and political ideology. It was during her first tenure that Bangladesh worked with other Member States as the proponent of Culture of Peace in 1997.”
