“The Chairman of the Global Center for Adaptation and former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon made this announcement today when he phoned Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina this afternoon,” Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said.
The press secretary said Ban Ki-moon made phone calls to the prime minister around 6:10 pm on Wednesday and talked with him for almost 12 minutes on various issues, including the CVF Conference and the Global Center on Adaptation Conference.
Karim said the Global Center on Adaptation Conference will be held in the second week of September and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will formalize the talks, while Ban Ki-moon will join virtually.
The press secretary said the former UN secretary general highly valued the leadership of prime minister Sheikh Hasina for fighting the situation of the Amphan coronavirus and super cyclone with courage.
In this connection, Ban Ki-moon believes that people in Southeast Asia must be built as resilient so they can cope with situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic and typhoon Amphan.
The former UN secretary general conveyed his heaviest congratulations to the prime minister Sheikh Hasina in his election as chairman of the CVF for the second time.
He also congratulated Saima Wazed Hossain, chairman of the National Advisory Committee for Neurological Development Disorders and Autism, because he had become a ‘Thematic Ambassador’ by CVF.
At the beginning of the talks, the prime minister and former UN secretary general exchanged greetings.
