Sports desk: The current government is bringing surprises to mark the birth anniversary of the nation's father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Soccer magician Lionel Messi arrives in Dhaka as part of that fact. But the matter is not yet final. The government of the Great Alliance made the initial decision to bring Argentine stars and boats.
The matter was discussed yesterday in a press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In this regard, Minister of State Mohammad Shahriar Alam and the new Argentine Ambassador, Daniel Choburu, discussed in a meeting. According to the press release, the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs was welcomed to host the Argentine football team in 2021 on the anniversary of the birth of the nation's father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
The meeting also discussed issues related to trade in both countries. Meanwhile, Bangladesh expressed an interest in signing a free trade agreement with South America.
It should be noted that the Argentine team, including Lionel Messi, arrived in Dhaka in 2011 at the invitation of the Bangladesh Football Federation. At the Bangabandhu International Stadium, they participated in a friendly match against Nigeria at that time. That was the first of the selection of Argentina and so far only the course of Bangladesh.
