Foreign doctors can be brought in for Khaleda’s treatment: Momen

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia is allowed to bring in any doctor from abroad and she is free to take treatment anywhere in the country, said Foreign Minister Dr. AK Abdul Momen while briefing foreign diplomats in Dhaka today.

“If Khaleda Zia wants to go abroad for treatment, she has to do it through the legal process,” he told journalists at the state guesthouse the Padma in Dhaka.

Momen said the medical documents have already been sent abroad and foreign doctors can come to Bangladesh for her treatment.

He told diplomats that the government is committed to free, fair, and transparent elections in Bangladesh.

The minister referred to the UP elections that he said were held fairly.

“There was some violence in the elections due to over-enthusiasm of some people,” he said.

He also spoke to the diplomats on the Rohingya crisis, their relocation to Bhasan Char, and World Peace Conference to be held on December 4-5.

Saudi Transport Minister Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser, who also had a bilateral meeting with Foreign Minister Momen, said that at least 30 Saudi private companies are interested to invest in Bangladesh.
