The phenomenon of foreign diplomats talking and commenting about Bangladesh is not new. Our culture of speaking to foreigners has flourished in the context of our political turmoil and internal mutually created dialectical situation. Our poor thinking politics is more responsible for this than they are. Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman introduced the Bengali nation as a self-respecting nation in the world court. He was able to establish Bangladesh as a holy land on the world map. But on August 15, 1975, a gang of assassins killed Bangabandhu and his family and ruined everything. Bangabandhu had just started to establish a clear policy of national unity in an independent country.
Meanwhile, such a barbaric incident happened. That is why it was not possible to establish the policy of national unity. The nation becomes divided. The nature of politics changes. Trade has become politics. It seems that General Zia, the inventor of trade-all-own politics, is not unknown to anyone. It is a proven fact that trade and politics are inevitable. In this situation, foreigners will take advantage of the politics of internal conflicts, what is strange about it!
In this, the symptoms of religious madness have also been added to the politics, as a result of which we have to endure the foreign boom in the field of sixes and sevens politics. Readers should not forget that after the fall of the dictatorial Ershad government, there was some atmosphere of democracy. But that wind turned into the poison of politics. Our politicians consciously asked for the help of foreigners with healthy brains in the construction of that poison. Australian Governor Sir Ninian Stephen arrived in 1994. Jimmy Carter, former president of the powerful nation, arrived in 2001. The Assistant Secretary of the United Nations also came. Many others came, all of them came to settle our political disputes. There is no way to deny their arrival the generous invitation of our politicians. Moreover, the ambassadors of important influential countries are also regularly talking about our internal politics. It has become a habit for ambassadors to talk non-stop about human rights, law and order and democracy. Our politicians gain self-gratification by complaining against their opponents. As a result, foreign diplomats do not feel the need to borrow clauses of the Vienna Convention’s Rules of Business.
However, a new surprise appeared recently. That is the Bangladesh-centric rhetoric of foreign diplomats. The incident is on 14 December 2022. This day is Martyred Intellectuals Day. US Ambassador Peter Haas visited the Shaheenbagh residence of BNP leader Sajedul Islam, who went missing 13 years ago. When a group of people tried to surround him while returning from there, he was able to return to the embassy with the help of security forces. In this incident, he felt himself insecure, said the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Meeting with Momen on an urgent basis. The issue sparked a discussion on the ambassador’s security issue. The United States expressed concern at the highest level in Bangladesh. US State Department Assistant Secretary for Central and South Asian Affairs Donald Lu spoke with Mohammad Imran, Bangladesh’s ambassador to the United States, about the security of Peter Haas. Meanwhile, on December 20, 2022, the Russian Embassy in Dhaka said in a statement, Russia has always been committed to the policy of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries including Bangladesh.
The next day, the US Embassy in Dhaka asked in a tweet, does this policy of Russia also apply to Ukraine? Later that evening, the Russian embassy tweeted a cartoon criticizing the role of the United States. The war of words between US-Russian diplomats began. Bangladesh centricity adds a different dimension to this tussle politics. Their war of words was not limited only to the ambassadors. It is affecting the entire western countries. It has to be mentioned that in order to make the upcoming national elections of Bangladesh transparent and inclusive, the United States, United Kingdom, Germany has been openly advising. Russia considers these suggestions to be internal interference. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement. In the statement, Maria Zakharova also mentioned that ‘US Ambassador Peter Haas is constantly trying to influence the internal politics of Bangladesh by talking about protecting the human rights of Bangladeshi citizens. The Russian spokesman said the same about the German ambassador. He considers these activities to be a violation of the Vienna Convention.
According to the words of the Russian spokesperson, the Bangladesh government may be getting some complacency. Although the words are in favor of the government, the mood is elsewhere.

The Russian spokesman is speaking at a time when the Russia-Ukraine war is going on. In this war, the United States is providing war logistics to Ukraine. The impact of the war has put pressure on the economy of the whole world. People of many countries of the world are affected by man-made disasters. The number of hungry people is increasing day by day. Humanity has created a lamentation. In such a situation, the Bangladesh government has always been calling for an end to the war. Our Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has called for an end to the war and to solve the problem through peaceful talks. War cannot be a solution. Civilian lives were lost in the war. Which can never be desirable. Diplomatic war centered on Bangladesh has never been seen in the past. Yes, that’s right, we will not tolerate anyone else’s meddling in our internal politics. Bangladesh will remain steadfast in its policy of maintaining beautiful and friendly relations with all countries of the world.
China has announced good relations with Moscow in the context of Russian aggression in Ukraine. The country’s government says China-Russia relations stand on solid pillars. This relationship will remain intact in the international unstable situation.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said this while speaking at a symposium on Sunday, December 25. He further said, ‘Our relationship with Moscow is not sensitive enough to be damaged by third party interference and provocation. No one can harm this relationship. China and Russia speak strongly against hegemony and against the Cold War.’ He said both countries are actively promoting the policy of bilateral cooperation, addressing mutual strategic interests and relying on mutual trust. China supports Russia’s war with Ukraine, according to the Chinese Foreign Minister. By third-party provocation, I mean the United States. China-Russia friendship has a far-reaching plan around Bangladesh. China is a major development partner of Bangladesh.
On the other hand, Russia is also a development partner. When Russia was part of the Soviet Union, At that time, the Soviet Union, a major superpower, was a supporter of our liberation war. But the USA and China were in favor of Pakistan. That is in the past now. The equation in world politics has changed. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the nature of politics has also changed. China’s astonishing rise in economy has surprised the whole world. Various electrical appliances produced in China have taken over the world. Apart from this, the invasion of the apparel industry is worth noting. China shocked the world in 2019 by creating the human-destroying coronavirus from its own labs from the sinister idea of monopolizing the pharmaceutical industry.
Nearly a million people have lost their lives due to the coronavirus. Many countries’ economies have been destroyed. Some have yet to turn around. The creation of this virus and the discovery of its antidote will bring glory to the human race. China has done this with such thinking. But they got caught. The virus that attacks the world itself Trade will expand with masks and vaccines, now that the virus is not leaving them alone. It first spread in Wuhan province. By blocking Wuhan and trying to prevent the spread of Corona in its own country, it has swallowed the world. Unfortunately, the truth is that the Russian vaccine, India’s vaccine, rather than their vaccine. US vaccines are much more effective.
It is known that the corona infection has taken a terrible form in China recently. People are facing obstacles in the lockdown program. The government has also attacked the common people who are protesting against the lockdown. In such a situation, it has focused on creating a deep friendship with Russia. At the moment, China needs Russia very much. Russia also needs China. If China is on the side, it can save its own interests by continuing the war. We must remember China’s role in Myanmar’s Rohingya issue. I cannot send the Rohingyas who have been sheltered for a long time back to that country.
A new science called “human-potential science” will be needed to continue the Sino-Russian relationship at the stage of strategic advantage thinking. The development of this science is needed in the whole world. Otherwise it will all be talk. of a new science called human-potential science. The development of this science is needed in the whole world. Otherwise it will all be talk. of a new science called human-potential science.
