Visit to UK & USA:
Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh was on an official tour to the United Kingdom and the United States to join the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II and the 77th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). She flew to London on September 15, 2022, and left London on September 19, 2022, after attending the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
On September 19, she landed in New York. When the world faces multiple threats with no sign of abatement, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s speech at the UNGA has hit the right chords of relevance and immediacy. Her speech succinctly brought forward the most formidable crises: the Russia-Ukraine war, the effects of climate change, and the Rohingya crisis. These are all emergencies that the world’s developed nations have not adequately addressed. Her speech was substantive, frank, and clear on the need to move away from rhetoric and push forward for effective, immediate actions to solve these multifarious global peace and stability crises.
