Bangladesh president leaves for Istanbul to join special OIC summit
President Abdul Hamid left Dhaka for Istanbul to join Organization of Islamic Cooperation's (OIC) special summit convened on December 13 over the unilateral US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital sparking protests across the Muslim world. "A Turkish Airlines flight, carrying the president and his entourage, left Hazrat Shahjalal (R) International Airport at about 10:35pm to join the special OIC summit in Istanbul," president's Press Secretary M Joynal Abedin told BSS. Finance Minister AMA Muhith, Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu, dean of the diplomatic crops, cabinet secretary, chiefs of the three services, principal secretary to the Prime Minister's Office, inspector general of police, Turkish ambassador in Dhaka, and other civil and military officials saw off the president at the VVIP Lounge of the airport.
