MNA National Desk: A red carpet was rolled out as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina arrived in Stockholm on Wednesday night on a three‐day bilateral visit to the Scandinavian country.

A Scandinavian Airlines flight carrying the prime minister and members of her entourage landed at Arlanda Airport in the Swedish capital at about 9:40pm (local time).

Later, the Prime Minister was given a guard of honour by the Swedish armed forces.

This is the first‐ever bilateral visit by any head of government or state of Bangladesh to Sweden. Sheikh Rehana, younger daughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, is accompanying the Prime Minister.

Wrapping up her three‐day visit to Sweden, the Prime Minister will return home on 17 June via London.
