Prime Minister Imran Khan has extended his congratulations to his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina Wajed,  on the country's national day.

"I extend my congratulations on Bangladesh's national day," said the premier in a letter sent on Thursday.

The premier noted that both countries desire peace, stability and progress in the region.

"In the days to come, Pakistan and Bangladesh can further strengthen relations with one another," said PM Imran.

He conveyed his best wishes to the people of Bangladesh.

Independence Day celebrations were canceled in Bangladesh due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis, reported Dhaka Tribune.
