Foreign minister AK Abdul Momen conveyed this recently in a meeting with US ambassador to Bangladesh Earl Mille, who delivered a letter of US secretary of state Mike Pompeo to him.

Pompeo also assured Bangladesh of working together to combat COVID-19 and of continued cooperation during this crisis.
