Bangladesh and UAE are working together to take bilateral ties to new heights

Forty-six years ago, on March 26, 1971, the father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared Bangladesh an independent and sovereign country. The country became free on December 16, 1971 after a nine-month war that saw bloodbath and enormous sacrifice of the people of Bangladesh. It is an interesting coincidence that on that very month, on December 2, 1971, the United Arab Emirates was established under the able leadership of the UAE's founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Both the countries thus started their independent statehood at the same time with the same aspiration for peace, progress, social justice and development.
