DHAKA, (The Inside Palestine) Bangladeshi foreign minister Abul-Kalam Abdul-Momen has condemned Israel’s racist measures against the Palestinian people in the West Bank, Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, describing them as “war crimes” and “crimes against humanity.”
In the presence of the Palestinian ambassador to the country, Abdul-Momen told a news conference on that Bangladesh would never recognize Israel as a state before the Palestinian people obtained their legitimate rights fully, including their right to an independent state on the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital.
The foreign minister hailed the ties between his country and Palestine as “inherently spiritual,” stressing that “no one can tamper with these relations.”
For his part, Palestinian ambassador Yousef Ramadan valued the supportive position of the Bangladeshi people and their government towards the Palestinian people and their just cause, describing the relations with the Asian country as “historic” and “deeply rooted for 50 years.”
Ramadan thanked the Bangladeshi people for their generous financial and in-kind donations to the Palestinian people.
