The prime minister made the remarks during an exchange of views with the officials while visiting the embassy on Wednesday.

She also went around different sections of the embassy, including the Shaheed Minar and Bangabandhu Corner.

On her arrival, Ambassador Muhammad Imran welcomed Hasina with a bouquet.

The prime minister paid homage to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by placing a wreath at the base of his sculpture and standing in solemn silence at the Bangabandhu Corner.

In 1997, the prime minister laid the foundation stone for the Chancery Building, and later in 2000, she inaugurated the newly constructed building.

During the visit, the PM was accompanied by Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen, Ambassador-at-Large Mohammad Ziauddin, Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen, and PMO Secretary Mohammad Salahuddin, among others.
