“Our active participation at multilateral forums has strengthened Bangladesh’s position. Regarding international issues, I hope that it will expand the scope of cooperation. In overall consideration, I think Bangladesh's participation in this session (of UNGA) has been very successful,” Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said.
Sheikh Hasina on Friday termed Bangladesh's participation in the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) as “successful”.
