Indonesian President leaves for home wrapping up two-day tour
Wrapping up his two-day official visit here in Bangladesh, Indonesian President left Dhaka for home around 9am today.
Indonesian President Joko Widodo yesterday went to Cox’s Bazar to witness the plight of Rohingya people who fled sectarian violence in Myanmar.
During the tour, the Indonesian President also met Bangladeshi counterpart President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and reassured his country’s continued support with the Rohingya issue.
Joko Widodo on a two-day tour arrived in Dhaka on Saturday afternoon and laid a wreath at the National Memorial in Savar at about 8:30am yesterday to pay homage to 1971 Liberation War martyrs.
After the arrival, Bangladesh rolled out the red carpet to welcome Indonesian President Joko Widodo on January 27.
President M Abdul Hamid along with his wife Rashida Khanam and senior ministers received the Indonesian leader as a 21-gun salute heralded his arrival at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.
The Bangladesh President escorted Widodo to a makeshift dais as a joint contingent of army, navy and air force offered him an honour guard.
