ON July 31 Foreign Minister Dr Dipu Moni in Dhaka stated that we have decided to reopen Bangladesh embassy in Afghanistan shortly. The process has been initiated and good news will be shared. According to the minister an official team will visit Kabul to select the mission building offered by Afghanistan. Bangladesh mission in Kabul was shut down sometime in 1989. Bangladesh embassy or consulates would be opened in Brazil, Nigeria, Sudan, Sierra Leone and Portugal. Presently, Bangladesh has 47 missions abroad. She said it is necessary to expand Bangladesh missions abroad considering the interest of Bangladeshi citizens living there and enhancing economic cooperation.
Reportedly, staff of the Bangladeshi embassy has been trained by New Delhi. A team comprising very senior officials of Bangladesh have visited Indian embassy located in Kabul. There are reports that India would also provide staff in Bangladesh embassy. In fact Indian Intelligence has already got ingress in Bangladesh foreign office and same tactics will be adopted while launching of new embassy in England. Government should keep her eyes open on Bangladesh embassy, so that she should not be able to play in the hands of Hindu.
