Bangladesh is considering reopening its diplomatic mission in Iraq if the security situation improves further.
Bangladesh Foreign Minister Dipu Moni told reporters in Dhaka that they are actively considering a proposal to reopen the mission in Iraq soon. She also said that a Bangladeshi team was in Iraq to assess the situation. The mission is needed to seize the opportunities for Bangladeshi workers in reconstruction in Iraq.
Several thousand Bangladeshi workers returned home after US-led allied forces invaded Iraq and launched a war to topple the Saddam Hussein in 2003. Dhaka shut down its mission in Baghdad at the time.
