The government on Sunday said the suspension of sending workers to trouble-torn Iraq would remain in force till the security situation improves there.

The Bangladesh Embassy in Baghdad is in constant touch with Bangladesh nationals working in Iraq to ensure their safety and wellbeing, said a Foreign Ministry statement here on Sunday.

It said the government of Bangladesh is closely monitoring the current situation in Iraq.

Bangladesh also reaffirmed its solidarity with Iraq and its people, and underscored the need for maintaining Iraq’s sovereignty and territorial integrity with the continuation of democratic process.

“Bangladesh is deeply concerned over the current crisis in Iraq, especially the unfolding humanitarian crisis. Bangladesh strongly condemns violence and atrocities,” the statement added.
