PM recalls Abe’s contribution to Bangladesh’s dev


DHAKA, July 25, 2022 (BSS) :


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said slain former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had played a great role for development of Bangladesh as the cabinet unanimously adopted a condolence motion on his demise.

“He (Shonzo Abe) was always beside Bangladesh in regard to its development alongside conducting development of Japan,” she said while chaired the weekly cabinet meeting.

The Premier joined virtually the meeting held at the Cabinet Division in Bangladesh Secretariat from her official Ganabhaban residence here.

She recalled Shinzo Abe’s role in constructing several mega projects of Bangladesh such as Matharbai Power Plant and deep sea port, metro rail and third terminal of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka.

The Premier added that he (Abe) also helped Bangladesh in conducting feasibility study on the Padma Bridge and building Rupsha Bridge.

She said Abe had played a courageous   role in continuing works of the projects that included metro rail being implemented by the Japanese government after the Holy Artisan attack in Bangladesh that resulted in deaths of several Japanese and Italian citizens.

“Many people had thought that the projects which were being implemented by Japan would be stopped,” she said.

At that tine Abe extended his helping hands, saying that he would always be with Bangladesh in its need.

The Prime Minister said that her government had brought the situation under control within a short period after the terror attack.

Sheikh Hasina said Abe supported Bangladesh on different issues in the international stage and helped to get duty and quota free access of various Bangladeshi products that included readymade garments to Japan.

“So, he (Shinzo Abe) had a great role in today’s development of Bangladesh. We deeply mourned his death and we adopted unanimously an obituary motion in the cabinet, ” she said.

“Bangladesh observed a day of mourning to this end,” she continued.

This is truly a day of sadness as such a heinous act happened in a place like Japan, she said, adding, “We don’t know whether the mystery of his killing will be revealed.”  

The Prime Minister said that they couldn’t even think that such a heinous act might take place in a country like Japan.

“We couldn’t realize why the attack was launched on a person like him. He was a good man, sensitive, patriotic and true politician,” she said.

The Premier went on saying that the Japanese government and some development partners also helped construct the Bangabandhu Bridge over the Jamuna River as Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in its maiden visit to Japan in 1973 after the Liberation War sought help from them in constructing the bridge.

Since the independence of Bangladesh, each of the Japanese governments has stood by Bangladesh, she said.
