Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will address a press conference on Sunday to brief the media about the outcomes of her 11-day tri-nation official visit to Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Finland.

“The press conference will be held at her official Ganabhaban residence at 5pm tomorrow [Sunday],” said the prime minister's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim on Saturday, reports BSS.

The prime minister returned home this morning, winding up her visits to the three countries from May 28 to June 7.

On May 28, the prime minister reached Tokyo, the capital of Japan, the first destination of her tri-nation visit.

During her four-day stay in Japan, the two countries signed the 40th ODA deal—worth US$2.5 billion—after a bilateral meeting between Sheikh Hasina and her Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe.

Additionally, the premier attended the Nikkei International Conference on "The Future of Asia" as a keynote speaker, joined a community reception accorded to her, and attended a breakfast roundtable meeting with Japanese business leaders.

There, the  family members of the Japanese Holey Artisan attack victims, and JICA president Shinichi Kitaoka, separately, met Sheikh Hasina.

Concluding her visit to Japan, the prime minister went to Saudi Arabia, on May 31, to attend the 14th Organisation of Islamic Cooperation Summit, held in Makkah, at the invitation of Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

During her three-day stay in Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Hasina also performed the holy Umrah in Makkah, and offered Ziarat at the Rawza Mubarak of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) in Madina.

Wrapping up her visit to Saudi Arabia, the premier went to Finland on June 3.

During her five-day stay in Finland, Sheikh Hasina met with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto on June 4 and joined a community reception—accorded to her by All European Awami League and Finland Awami League—on June 5.
