Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday sought Turkey’s involvement in ensuring the return of forcibly-displaced Myanmar citizens from Bangladesh to their homeland.

Sheikh Hasina made the request when visiting Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu met her at her official residence Ganabhaban.

Deputy Press Secretary to the prime minister Hasan Jahid Tusher briefed reporters after the meeting.

The prime minister also sought more Turkish investment in Bangladesh’s special economic zones and referred to the vast regional market due to its geopolitical position and the local market.

Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh offers a huge market as the country is situated at the centre of South Asia and South-East Asia. "Both countries will be benefited from this investment.”

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu expressed his country's keen interest to strengthen bilateral ties with Bangladesh saying that Turkey gives value to the bilateral relations with Bangladesh.

He also said his country will do whatever is needed to strengthen the bilateral trade.

The Turkish Foreign Minister informed that his country is investing in Bangladesh in all sectors from energy to tourism.

Sheikh Hasina thanked Turkey for repairing Bangladesh's Naval warship “Bijoy,” which was damaged in a devastating blast in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. 

She reiterated the invitation to the Turkish president.

Mevlut Cavusoglu said the Turkish president might visit Bangladesh in March, the golden jubilee month of Bangladesh's independence if the Covid-19 situation improves.

He thanked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for inviting his president to visit Bangladesh.

The Turkish foreign minister highly appreciated the leadership of the Bangladeshi premier and the development of Bangladesh.

He also praised the steps taken by the government to face the ongoing pandemic.

Prime minister's Principal Secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus and Turkish Ambassador to Bangladesh Mustafa Osman Turan were also present during the event.
