Shahriar Alam, MP, Hon’ble State Minister for Foreign Affairs at the Virtual Conference on “Sustaining Support for the Rohingya Refugee Response” Statement by Hon’ble Foreign Minister H.E. The change came in February 1974, when Bangladesh's entry into the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) threw up a new dimension to its diplomacy.
S. Jaishankar’s “The India Way” is a rare book by a sitting foreign minister. Bangladesh, once far behind, just surpassed India in GDP per capita. Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman personified that cause and that sagacity.
Dhaka's membership of the organization certainly riled Pakistan, which immediately took itself out of the Commonwealth (only to go back to it a few decades later).
Why fixing the second issue isn’t possible without addressing the first.
The perception at the time was that through joining the OIC, Bangladesh had filled a major gap in its diplomacy and was therefore now equipped to forge ahead with exploring trade and other possibilities with the Islamic world. Indeed, through 1972 and 1973, the Chinese leadership refused to have Dhaka take its place in the world body, clearly out of an unwillingness to let Pakistan down. In 1974, Bangabandhu agreed to the request of a very high-powered OIC delegation to Bangladesh to join the OIC and attend its forthcoming summit in Lahore, but only if Pakistan first formally recognised Bangladesh as a sovereign independent country, and he would be accorded full state honours with the guard of honour with the national anthem being played, and the flag of Bangladesh flown. The foreign relations share the Bangladeshi government's policies in its external relations with the international community. Shahriar Alam, MP, Hon’ble State Minister for Foreign Affairs at the Virtual Conference on “Sustaining Support for the Rohingya Refugee Response” Statement by Hon’ble Foreign Minister H.E. The Bangladesh war and its impact on the power structure in South Asia, the Afghanistan crisis, the supply of advanced technology and weapons to Pakistan by China, a Pakistan oriented US foreign policy etc., have been the external situational inputs of Indian Foreign Policy. As the U.N. warns of a continuing risk of genocide, Myanmar should seriously consider the last 30 years and ask if its security policies are helping anyone at all. These were not merely symbolic but real assertions of his and Bangladesh's sovereign independence.
I also had the rare privilege of being a member of Bangabandhu's official delegation to Egypt, Iraq, UAE and Kuwait and witnessed first-hand how his mesmeric charisma and personality almost miraculously resolved seemingly intractable problems at arriving at a joint position on issues that had seemed insurmountable at senior officials' level till only the day before he met his counterpart.
It was our firm belief that the emergence of Bangladesh would materially contribute towards the creation of a structure of peace and stability in our subcontinent and that the confrontation and strife of the past could be replaced by relations of friendship and co-operation for the welfare of all our peoples.
His worldview emanated from his own and his people's collective experiences, in fighting for justice against the denial of equality, fundamental political, economic and cultural rights and particularly the right to self-determination, and of equity in development. Foreign policy refers to the policy of a sovereign state to achieve its desired goals to the foreign countries.
Not only have we developed good-neighbourly relations with our immediate neighbours, India, Burma and Nepal, but we have also striven to turn away from the past and to open a new chapter in our relations with Pakistan." The lasting impact of Sanders and Corbyn, a profile of the UAE’s invisible Palestinian hand, and a drift toward authoritarianism in West Africa. We expect that, in the overriding interest of the welfare of the peoples of the subcontinent, Pakistan will reciprocate by coming forward to solve these outstanding problems in a spirit of fair play and mutual accommodation so that the process of normalisation can be carried to a successful conclusion."
Foreign Policy is usually viewed as an extension of domestic policy.
According to Prof. Tailor, “Foreign policy of a sort which will go on so long as are sovereign states” For an operational definition of foreign policy, we can say that it consists of the action which a state undertakes to achieve its national interest in the global environment. What underlay his vision of regional cooperation and development? Bangabandhu's government earned, in these critical two years, the rare honour of seeing most nations in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas accord it diplomatic recognition. In 1974, he dispatched delegations led by his foreign minister to several countries considered to be of great political and economic importance. His speech at the United Nations delivered after our admission as member on September 25, 1974, in my view seminally set the tone and tenor of the underlying principles for our foreign policy. His famously enunciated dictum, that our foreign policy was based on the bedrock of "friendship towards all, and malice towards none," therefore, is not merely a catchy phrase inspired by Lincoln; it flows from his convictions as enunciated above. Dhaka was in little mood to be seen as being under the influence of Delhi.
That Bangladesh was committed to pursuing a secular democratic structure was a powerful factor in persuading other nations of the need to give the new nation its rightful place in the councils of the world. On being informed by the writer that he was from Bangladesh, Heath stopped for a while; there was a twinkle in his eyes and a smile on his lips.
But for us in the emerging world, ultimately, we must have faith in ourselves and in our capacity, through the united and concerted efforts of our peoples, to fulfill our destiny and to build for ourselves a better future.".
The new government in Dhaka, conscious of the decisive Soviet role at the United Nations Security Council, where Moscow vetoed all resolutions that looked about to prevent the fall of Pakistan in Bangladesh, certainly understood the need for close ties with the Soviet Union. I do believe that he understood full well that neutrality entailed not getting enmeshed in the cut-throat rivalries of fiercely contesting great powers, whether between the powers in his immediate neighbourhood (India and China) or the superpowers that dominated a deeply divided world (US-USSR). In recent days, Washington raced to decipher the Mueller report and Indonesian voters cast ballots at more than 800,000 polling stations. Everyone around us would do well to try and fathom better where we, as a nation, come from, just as we too shall respect their own visions. Foreign Policy’s latest podcast recommends shows from around the world.
China’s growing influence in Latin America and climate change will both continue to shape the future of the bilateral relationship.
He made several allusions to Bangladesh becoming the "Switzerland of the east", not merely in the sense of promoting tourism. It would be very moot to revisit the foundations of our policy that were laid down by the Father of the Nation during his lifetime and to reflect on whether we have followed or deviated from them. Muslims fear the worst. Then he affirms: "Peace is an imperative for the survival of mankind; it represents the deepest aspirations of men and women throughout the world. This quiet diplomacy was sustained throughout Bangabandhu's life. It can be argued, therefore, that Bengali secular democracy, having been acknowledged by the world as Bangladesh's defining diplomatic principle, led to a swift opening of doors everywhere. Given the trauma the Bengali nation has faced in the years since his assassination, the relevance of that belief rises out of the mists of time.
One sees this as a repetitive theme in his national and international pronouncements. Obviously, therefore, a strong, constructive bonding with India was in order. They are all part of a greater comity of nations. Bangladesh Table of Contents. It was against such a background of Soviet support to the Bangladesh cause in 1971 that Bangabandhu paid an official visit to Moscow in March 1972.
