Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina returned home in the early hours of Wednesday after attending the “Heads of State and Government Summit” of the 25th Annual Conference of Parties (COP25) at Madrid, wrapping up her three-day official visit to Spain.

A special Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight carrying the premier and her entourage landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 12:50am, reports BSS.

The flight took off from the Madrid Torrejon Airport at 9am local time on Tuesday.

Hassan Mahmood Khandker, Bangladesh’s ambassador to Spain and permanent representative to the World Tourism Organization, saw the prime minister off at the airport.

The COP25 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is being held from December 2-13 in Madrid under the Presidency of Chile and with logistical support from Spain.

Hasina had arrived at Madrid on Sunday afternoon.
