MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 09th October, 2020) Bangladesh is hoping to sign several bilateral agreements, particularly in the spheres of agriculture and maritime transport, with Russia, A. K. Abdul Momen, the Bangladeshi foreign minister, told Sputnik in an exclusive interview.
“We already have quite a number of signed instruments with Russia. Yet a number of agreements on cooperation in agriculture, education, maritime transport, and other sectors are pending. These instruments are expected to be signed during the high-level visits,” the Bangladeshi foreign minister said.
Momen expressed his hope that high-level bilateral visits will be able to take place once the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided, adding that he believed both Bangladesh and Russia can also enhance their cooperation in a range of other spheres.
In January, Gazprom and Bangladesh‘s Petrobangla signed a memorandum of understanding on strategic cooperation for a period of five years, and both sides have expressed a desire to increase production.
