US President Joe Biden has written to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, saying he wants to work with her to achieve Bangladesh's economic goals.

He also expressed eagerness to partner with Bangladesh on their “shared vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific”.

The foreign ministry said the US Embassy in Dhaka shared the letter with the ministry on Sunday.

"The United States is committed to supporting Bangladesh's ambitious economic goals and partnering with Bangladesh on our shared vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific,” Biden wrote.

As the two countries embark on the next chapter of the US-Bangladesh partnership, the US president said he wants to convey “the sincere desire of his Administration to continue their work together on regional and global security, economic development, climate change and energy, global health, humanitarian support, especially for Rohingya refugees, and more”.

"We have a long and successful history of working together to solve problems, and our strong people-to-people ties are the foundation of this relationship."
