The foreign minister of German Democratic Republic Mr. Winzer arrived in Dacca this afternoon. He is the first foreign minister of the first European country which recognised Bangladesh to visit Dacca.
GDR, The minister said, has always supported the liberation struggle of Bangladesh politically and materially. He said that our government will try to get Bangladesh, recognition from other European countries., and other world Nations.
In 1970 and 1971 Pakistan offered the diplomatic relation with GDR but it was turned down and no possibilities were explored at that time since GDR was aware of the liberation movement of Bangladesh and the atrocities committed by the Pakistan army.
GDR also collected a lot of money for the Bangladesh refugees who went to India.
