Dhaka, November 8, 2023 – In a significant move ahead of the upcoming national elections, a delegation of Bangladesh Awami League is set to visit China at the invitation of the ruling Communist Party of China. The visit is seen as a crucial diplomatic engagement that could impact Bangladesh’s political landscape.

Led by Awami League presidium member Muhammad Farooq Khan MP, the delegation includes prominent members of the central Awami League international affairs sub-committee. Notable members include former convener of China Awami League, Mr. Tarun Kanti Das Kanti, as well as Khaled Masud Ahmed and Suman Kundu, both from the international affairs sub-committee.

Awami League International Affairs Secretary Shammi Ahmed announced that the delegation would depart from Dhaka for China on November 8, at around 3 pm. While the head of the visiting team, Muhammad Farooq Khan, is expected to return home on November 12, the remaining three members are set to conclude their visit on November 14.

During their visit, the Awami League delegation is scheduled to engage in bilateral meetings with leaders of China’s ruling party. These discussions are expected to encompass a range of contemporary political issues, and the Rohingya crisis is likely to be a focal point of the talks.

This is not the first visit by Awami League representatives to China this year. In May, a 17-member delegation led by Muhammad Farooq Khan undertook a visit to China, returning home on May 31. Additionally, in July, a 12-member delegation from the 14-party alliance, led by Awami League, visited China. Rashed Khan Menon, president of the Workers’ Party, played a prominent role in this visit, alongside other key political figures such as Hasanul Haque Inu, President of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (Jasad), and Dilip Barua, General Secretary of Samyavadi Dal. These visits underline the growing importance of international relations in Bangladesh’s political landscape.
