Myanmar has been unresponsive to Bangladesh's efforts to improve bilateral ties over the last two years, Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali said yesterday.
Dhaka stepped up efforts to enhance friendship and cooperation with Naypyidaw since the formation of the democratic government by the National League of Democracy (NLD) in March 2016, he said.
As part of this endeavour, Bangladesh's foreign secretary visited Myanmar as the goodwill ambassador of the prime minister on June 30-July 1 last year.
Besides, Sheikh Hasina met Myanmar's State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi on the sideline of the UN General Assembly in New York and of BRICS-BIMSTEC Summit in Goa of India last year.
"In these meetings, Bangladesh spoke about ending any misconceptions and assured the NLD government of cooperation,” Mahmood said.
