Workers Party of Bangladesh president Rashed Khan Menon urged the government on Saturday to support the ongoing initiative for nuclear disarmament in the Korean peninsula.
‘As a peace-loving country, Bangladesh must stand beside North Korea in the disarmament process,’ he told a discussion on the occasion of 25th death anniversary of Korean leader Kim IL Sung at National Press Club in the city on Saturday.
North Korean ambassador Pak Song Yop also addressed the function as a special guest.
Journalist Forum of Bangladesh Institute of Juche Idea organised the function with its president Jamal Uddin Jamal in the chair. Its secretary general Mahbub Alam conducted the discussion.
Former minister Menon said that North Korea has set an example by achieving its development goals overcoming the embargo of the UN and the US.
Criticising Bangladesh’s foreign policy, he said Dhaka remains silent about the disarmament process while the world’s strong countries are now rushing to the Korean Demilitarised Zone.
The North Korean ambassador said the Korean people established the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea by fighting against the Japanese imperialism under the leadership of Kim IL Sung.
He claimed that the Korean people have established a nation where the people are the real kings of the country.
The function was also addressed by former state minister Syed Didar Bakht, chairman of Bangladesh Institute of Juche Idea Sheikh Rafiqul Islam Bablu, Dhaka University professor Mesbah Kamal, and lawyer Garib Newaz.
