Foreign Minister Hasan Mahmud has discussed the reissuance of visas for Bangladeshi expatriates' family members stranded in Bangladesh due to the Covid-19 pandemic, seeking Bahrain's cooperation to reunite them with their families in Bahrain. This discussion took place on Wednesday, during a meeting with Bahrain's new Ambassador-designate to Bangladesh, Abdul Rahman Mohamed Al Gaoud, who is based in New Delhi.

The Ambassador highlighted the contributions of Bangladeshi expatriates in Bahrain, acknowledging their diligence and positive impact on various sectors, notwithstanding minor legal infractions by a few individuals.

Ambassador Al Gaoud is poised to present his credentials to the President, symbolising the commencement of his diplomatic tenure in Bangladesh.  A significant topic during the conversation was the potential enhancement of direct air connectivity between Chattogram, Bangladesh, and Manama, Bahrain.

The Foreign Minister proposed that Gulf Airlines could operate additional flights between these cities to foster stronger people-to-people ties. The Ambassador-designate welcomed this suggestion and requested further assistance to increase flight frequencies.

Describing the relationship between Bangladesh and Bahrain as excellent, the Foreign Minister expressed optimism for expanding cooperation across various sectors, including trade, manpower employment, culture, and education, during Al Gaoud's tenure. He also extended gratitude to Bahrain for accommodating numerous Bangladeshi workers, who play a vital role in the economic development of both nations.

Ambassador-designate Al Gaoud reciprocated the sentiments, expressing eagerness to deepen economic ties and bilateral relations between Bahrain and Bangladesh. The discussions also touched upon enhancing trade and investment avenues.

In a move signaling Bahrain's intent to bolster business and cultural exchanges, the Ambassador informed the Minister about Bahrain's plans to establish a diplomatic mission in Dhaka.

Additionally, Ambassador Al Gaoud met with Foreign Secretary Masud bin Momen to further discuss bilateral interests and collaborative opportunities._UNB
