Moscow, Sep 8 (Prensa Latina) The Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina, received Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Maria Zakharova said on Friday.

The diplomat reported on Telegram that Lavrov discussed bilateral, regional and global issues with Hasina, and later paid tribute to Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Father of the Nation.

Zakharova recalled that Lavrov’s two-day working visit to Bangladesh is the first by a Russian foreign minister to Bangladesh.

Lavrov met with his counterpart, Abul Kalam Abdul Momen, with whom he discussed the prospects for the future development of bilateral relations, and exchanged views on the latest regional and international issues.
