PM to brief media Sunday
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will address a press conference Sunday on her recent visit to Canada and USA. The press conference will be held at 4pm at her official residence Gonobhaban, BSS reports quoting PM's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim. Hasina returned home on Friday evening from Washington after concluding her 17-day visit to the Unites States and Canada. On September 14, she had left Dhaka for the North American tour. She first paid a four-day visit to Canada on September 15-18 to attend the Fifth Replenishment Conference of the Global Fund on deadly diseases at the invitation of her Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau. She then went to New York City to join the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). During her stay in New York, the premier also held bilateral talks with world leaders and took part in the discourses on global issues. A large number of front-ranking leaders of Awami League and its associate bodies were present at the airport to greet the prime minister as the party accorded a grand reception on her successful visit to the US and Canada and receiving the Planet 50-50 Champion and the Agent of Change Award.
