PUTRAJAYA – Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who arrived yesterday on a three-day visit to Malaysia, was accorded an official welcome today at the lobby of the Prime Minister’s Department at the Perdana Putra Building here.
The welcome ceremony was held at the lobby because of rain.
Sheikh Hasina was greeted by Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak upon her arrival there at 2.55 pm, and the national anthems of the two countries were played.
Sheikh Hasina then inspected a guard-of-honour mounted by 99 officers and men from the 1st Battalion Royal Malay Regiment.
Several Cabinet ministers, foreign diplomats and senior government officials also attended the ceremony. – BERNAMA
