In a letter to Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday, Dr. A.K. Abdul Momen wrote, “The Trinamool Congress has won the support of the people for forming the Cabinet for the third time in a row, which is a reflection of the continued confidence and trust of the people of West Bengal in your leadership.”

The Foreign Minister noted that excellent bilateral relations exist between Bangladesh and India and the potential areas of mutual cooperation between the two countries have been further expanded in recent years.
“In this special year of celebrating the Golden Jubilee of Bangladesh’s Independence, the Mujib Borsho and 50 years of diplomatic relations between Bangladesh and India, I am gratefully remembering the support and sacrifice of the people of India and the political leadership, including the people of West Bengal,” he also wrote.
