Violent extremism is a global threat. As we have seen too frequently, international terrorist groups can recruit and operate anywhere.
I am here to offer U.S. assistance and support for Bangladesh’s own efforts against terrorism and extremism. This is an extension of our long and deep partnership based on shared values of democracy, tolerance, and inclusion, and the United States remains committed to this broad-based relationship with Bangladesh of which CT is but one part.
Sharing the concerns of Bangladeshis, we have taken steps to bolster the security of our staff. Our support for, cooperation with, and commitment to this country remains as robust as ever. We remain steadfast in our friendship with the Bangladeshi people.
