Clinton was the first US president to visit Bangladesh in 2000, when the Hasina-led administration was in office.

“The US president himself requested me. Bill Clinton was the president then. He came to Dhaka and my reply was, I want to use the resources for the country’s people first,” Hasina said on Saturday.

The prime minister said she faced the same question during her US visit afterwards. “My reply was the same.”

Hasina’s remarks came on Saturday while addressing a programme of the founding anniversary of the Special Security Force or SSF, the agency responsible for providing security for VVIPs.
