President Md. Abdul Hamid has given the following message on the occasion of the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers-2021 :
”I welcome the initiative of observing the ‘International Day of UN Peacekeepers – 2021’ in Bangladesh as elsewhere in the world. On this auspicious occasion, I would like to convey my heartiest congratulations and felicitations to all members of the UN peacekeepers including Bangladesh. I pay my deep homage to the valiant members of UN peacekeepers who made supreme sacrifices for upholding world peace.
The government has been consistent in upholding the principle of ‘Friendship to all, malice towards none’ as enunciated by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Bangladesh has now emerged as a country of peace and communal harmony around the world. The peacekeepers of Bangladesh have been able to attain credibility by dint of their highest standard of professionalism, devotion, and bravery since their first engagement to the UN peacekeeping operations in 1988. The outstanding contribution of our peacekeepers has upheld the image of Bangladesh at the international arena.
Bangladesh is one of the largest troops contributing nations in the UN peacekeeping missions. Professionalism along with utmost sincerity, discipline, efficiency, and humane behavior have contributed to the success of our peacekeepers. I hope Bangladeshi peacekeepers, performing their duties with honesty, devotion, and professionalism; will be able to continue this trend in establishing world peace, harmony, and amity in the days to come.
I wish the observance of ‘International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers-2021’ a grand success.
Khoda Hafez, May Bangladesh Live Forever.”
