Bangladesh has encouraged Saudi Arabia to join the UN Security Council to promote and protect the interest of humanity at large, and that of the Ummah in particular, in this important global forum. “As a close friend and a member of the Ummah, Bangladesh encourages Saudi Arabia, leader of the Muslim Ummah, to join the UN Security Council,” said a statement issued by External Publicity Wing of the Foreign Ministry here on Tuesday. It said Bangladesh fully appreciates the compulsions that led to Saudi Arabia’s decision to turn down a seat in the Security Council which is in need of effective reforms on the basis of a broad-based consensus. “While respecting the sovereign decision of Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh believes that Saudi Arabia’s presence in and engagement with the UN Security Council would help make effective progress towards a peaceful resolution to the crisis in Syria and on the question of Palestine,” it said. Bangladesh enjoys close brotherly and friendly relations with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it mentioned. – UNB
