The President appreciated Indonesia’s humanitarian assistance for the Rohingyas as well as its role in the United Nations to find a durable solution to the problem.

Abdul Hamid recalled with appreciation the support of the Indonesian people to Bangladesh independence in 1971 and Indonesia’s recognition of Bangladesh on February 25, 1972.

He hoped that regional and global peace, progress and prosperity will be further brightened in the days to come.

Referring to President Widodo’s visit here, after a long break, he said this visit will open up opportunities for cooperation in newer areas and strengthen the prevailing relations.

The President requested his counterpart to ensure the access for Bangladeshi select products to Indonesian market by removing tariff and non-tariff barriers.

Stating that Bangladesh is a leading producer in pharmaceuticals, leather goods, footwear, ceramics, jute products, frozen fishes and handicrafts, which are being exported to the USA, the EU and other destinations, the President hoped to export these items to Indonesians markets also.

The Indonesian President lauded the role of Bangladesh in Rohingya issue.

He assured of providing continued support for the safe and dignified settlement of the displaced Rohingyas, hoping that the agreement signed between Bangladesh and Myanmar on Rohingyas repatriation issue will be a successful one.

Later, visiting President of Indonesia signed a visitors’ book.

Meanwhile, Indonesian first lady Iriana Joko Widodo made a courtesy call on Rashida Khatun, wife of President Hamid, here where Abdul Hamid’s family members were present.
