Former Sri Lankan President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga made a courtesy call on Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Gono Bhaban, Dhaka, today.

After the meeting, PM's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said they discussed various matters relating to mutual interests and different aspects of their political parties.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, also the president of Bangladesh Awami League and Chandrika Kumaratunga, former chairman of Sri Lankan Freedom Party, shared their political experiences as both the parties have many commonalities.

Founder of the both parties- Father of the Nation of Bangladesh Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and Sri Lankan leader Solomon Bandarnaike-were brutally assassinated and both the organisations were subject to repression and torture for a long time.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina informed Chandrika of various aspects of Bangladesh's society saying every person irrespective of his or her religious belief is living peacefully and participating together in every festival.
The prime minister said her government has successfully resolved the ethnic problem in the Chittagong Hill Tracts without intervention of any third party.

The press secretary said during the meeting both the leaders also recalled their personal relations.

PM's Advisor on International Affairs Dr Gowher Rizvi and PMO Secretary Suraiya Begum were also present during the meeting.

Chandrika Kumaratunga arrived in Dhaka on May 21 on a four-day visit to join a program of London-based Global Leadership Foundation.(The Daily Star)

    There is one difference between the two. Sheikh Hasina is loved by her party and men and women in her country but I doubt about CBK

    if some one know who is sheikh Hasina you will not put this comment. I got plenty of Bangladesh friends. CBK has more calibre than Hasina. Hasina is a puppet of India kill own people
