The US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl R Miller visited Rajshahi on a two-day tour where he inaugurated the new American Corner at Varendra University and laid a wreath at the Rajshahi University Shahid Minar Monument to commemorate the Bangladesh Liberation War.
He met with alumni of an ongoing US initiative aimed at building trust and understanding between students and police, and later introduced a US funded film series promoting tolerance, non-violence, and community engagement among young people.
The ambassador also talked to local people and visited local shops. He made ‘Kalai Roti’, a popular locally-made roti and enjoyed its taste at a shop.
