Media briefing by the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh, Dr. Dipu Moni, on Friday 26 April at ICwS

Tuesday 23 April 2013

CJA-UK invites you to a media briefing by the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh, Dr. Dipu Moni on Friday April 26 at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies. Bangladesh currently chairs the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG) which is meeting earlier that day.

It appears likely that CMAG's discussions will touch on the decision to hold the CHOGM summit in Sri Lanka in November. There have been calls for Sri Lanka to be placed on the agenda of CMAG for alleged violations of fundamental Commonwealth values and for the venue of CHOGM to be moved. However, no member country of the Commonwealth has formally called for a venue change, and the Commonwealth Secretariat is proceeding with arrangements to hold CHOGM  in Sri Lanka. Dr. Moni will be briefing the media immediately after chairing the CMAG meeting and will be giving her perspective on the discussions.

Date: April 26 2013

Time: 15:30 -16:30 

Venue: Chancellor's Hall, Senate House, University of London, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
