PM lands home from London

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina reached Dhaka from London after wrapping up her 16-day official visit to the US and UK.

A commercial flight (BG-208) of Biman Bangladesh Airlines carrying the enturage of the prime minister landed at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 12:15pm.

During her stay in New York from September 17 to 22, the premier attended the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session and other high-level side and bilateral events.

In Washington DC from September 23-29, Sheikh Hasina attended a reception accorded to her by Bangladeshi expatriates in the United States and visited the Bangladesh Embassy in Washington DC.
