Awami League (AL) has congratulated Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for her remarkable address at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) for establishing world peace through building friendly and humanitarian relations stopping war and conflicts. 

In a statement on Saturday, AL General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader hailed the premier for her speech in which she pledged to build a knowledge-based developed Bangladesh by 2041. 

He said Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina has been taking up time-befitting work-plan and implementing those to build a welfare state for the future generation. 

Her speech at the UNGA also reflected it, he said and again congratulated the premier for giving message and presenting directives as a successful statesman before the world leaders. 

“As a successful statesman, Sheikh Hasina presented the formula to resolve the crisis period before the world leaders at the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly,” he said. 

She identified war, arms race, exercise of power and conflict of interest are the main impediments to establishing world peace and ensuring emancipation of mankind, he mentioned. 

Quader said the premier called for building a peaceful and sustainable world resolving crisis and conflict through mutual talks shunning the antagonist path of imposing forceful economic sanction and counter sanction. 

The call of Bangabandhu daughter is the vision for world peace and emancipation of mankind as her speech echoed the essence of establishing rights and dignity of repressed and deprived people of the world, he observed. 

Alongside the Russia-Ukraine war, the peace and stability, climate change, food insecurity, Covid-19 pandemic, Palestine and migration issues, among others, concerning the global as well as Bangladesh perspectives were prominently featured in Sheikh Hasina's speech in the 77th session of the UNGA, he mentioned. 

The AL general secretary said the premier delivered her speech in Bangla likewise in all the previous periods following the footprint of Bangabandhu and underscored the need for complete disarmament, including the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, he said. 

Quader said as her address included message of solutions to current crisis as well as the directives for establishing a safe and peaceful world for the future generation, it enhanced the dignity of the people of Bangladesh in the world stage.
