Bangladesh has condemned Israeli efforts to deport people out of Gaza and demanded immediate ceasefire and full and unhindered access to humanitarian assistance.
“Full implementation of the three Rs -Relief, Review and Recovery can only be possible with an end of genocidal attack on innocent civilians and infrastructures,” said Mohammad Tofazzel Hossain Miah, Principal Secretary, Prime Minister’s Office in ILO Governing Body meeting on Wednesday, report agencies.
In his statement, Tofazzel Hossain said Bangladesh would like to urge the international community to intensify pressure on the occupying power, Israel and its apartheid government, to stop this violent attack on civilians, to allow Palestinians to rebuild their economy with international support, and to allow the Palestinian workforce to resume employment in Israel.
He said Bangladesh aligns with the statement delivered on behalf of the majority of ASPAG countries and the statement of OIC.
Bangladesh expressed its profound concerns over 66 per cent loss of jobs with 85 per cent reduction of employment in Gaza strip as well as 40 per cet loss of employment in West Bank.
“The illegal war against the civilian and non-combatant population of Palestine has caused shrinking of the Palestinian economy by one third in the fourth quarter of 2023. Labour market governance institutions, labour administration, social protection, social dialogue got irreparably affected,” said Tofazzel Hossain.
Bangladesh thanked the donors and partner countries who have contributed to the ILO’s Development Cooperation Programme.
“My delegation also expresses its sincere appreciation to the Office for conducting a three-phase programme with priorities in Relief, Review and Recovery with an internal budget of 1.4 million initially,” said Tofazzel Hossain.
“We would like to join our voices to enhance donor support for successful implementation of the programme,” he added.
He highlighted the overwhelming necessity of employment-intensive infrastructure building and arranging suitable jobs for the family members of the murdered Palestinians, disabled persons.
“Bangladesh, like most other States, continues to recognise Palestine as a State in the fullest meaning of the term and identifies Isarel as the illegal occupying power of Palestine,” said Tofazzel Hossain.
Bangladesh expressed its grave concerns in the genocidal attacks on unarmed civilians, including women and children, of Palestine by the occupant Israeli Armed forces as well as the targeting of civilian infrastructures and indiscriminate use of force.
“We condemn Israel for its blatant violations of international humanitarian and human rights laws,” Tofazzel Hossain said.
