Dhaka, Feb 26: Discussions were held with the US delegation regarding the lifting of sanctions on Bangladesh's elite force RAB. The US delegation made five observations. Foreign Minister Hasan Mahmud informed this.

The minister said, "We have discussed the Rohingya issue. I thanked them. We discussed that they are continuously putting pressure on Myanmar to repatriate the Rohingyas and that they are providing all possible support to the Rohingyas we have given them shelter here. I discussed with them the implementation of the ceasefire in Gaza. We discussed the Russia-Ukraine war that plagues all of us today and how it was disappointing for all of us that this war suddenly broke out after the Corona pandemic."

He said that the topic of the meeting of the President of Ukraine with Sheikh Hasina at the Munich Security Conference (MSC) was discussed here.

They also started working on how to remove it, discussing their observations. We also discussed their investments. We discussed how to enhance that, how they can contribute more to our development journey."

When asked about the five observations given by RAB to withdraw the ban, he said, "Those observations have been communicated to us, they have given details. Will give it to RAB, will work on it when we get it. We await the details of the five observations they made."
