PM returns home today

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who reached Abu Dhabi on Thursday morning from Rome concluding her four-day official visit to Italy and Vatican City, returns home today evening after a stopover in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) capital.

"An Etihad Airways flight carrying the premier and her entourage members is scheduled to leave Abu Dhabi International Airport for Dhaka at 1.35 pm (Abu Dhabi time)," a spokesman of the Prime Minister's Office told BSS yesterday.

He said the flight is expected to reach Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 8 pm today.

The premier departed Leonardo da-Vinci Fiumicino Airport in Rome for Abu Dhabi at 10 am local time on Wednesday (3 am BST Thursday) winding up her four-day official visit to Italy and Vatican City.

In Italy, she attended the annual governing council meeting of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) at the invitation of IFAD President Gilbert F Houngbo.

At an invitation of Pope Francis, Sheikh Hasina also visited the Holy See (Vatican City) and held meetings with the Pope and Secretary State of Vatican City Cardinal Pietro Paroline.
