Bangladesh and the UK have historic relations and traditional friendly ties. Bangladesh recalls with deep gratitude the support of the British people across various constituencies and that of the then British political leaders during the Liberation War in 1971. Being released from Pakistani prison, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman visited London to meet the then British Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath, before returning to Bangladesh on 10 January 1972. This laid the foundation of the special nature of the relationship between the two friendly countries.
