All should work together to ensure terrorism and radicalism do not surface as they did between 2001 and 2006

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has said that all should work together sincerely so that the ugly face of terrorism and radicalism do not resurface in the form it was rampant from 2001 through 2006.

In a statement he said, "I recall with sadness the 9/11 Twin Towers devastation, in which 2,988 innocent people lost their lives, of whom 6 were from Bangladesh and 3 were from my own district, Sylhet."

"While we pray for their salvation, we hope that such an incident never occurs again," Momen said.

The Foreign Minister said they are pleased that their recent discussion with the US leadership is encouraging.

"It has taken many steps to end terrorism. In Bangladesh, due to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's zero tolerance policy against terrorism, there have not been any bomb blasts, grenade attacks, and fear of deaths due to terrorist attacks," Momen said.
