Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is travelling to Saudi Arabia to join the Arab Islamic American Summit.

She along with her entourage will board a Biman VIP flight to Riyadh on Saturday night, said her Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim.

She was invited to attend the conference by Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. The prime minister will also perform Umrah and offer prayers at the grave of Prophet Muhammad in Medina on Monday.

Donald Trump has reached Saudi Arabia on Saturday for his very first tour of a Middle Eastern country as US president. This is also his first foreign tour.

He will join Muslim country leaders at the Arab Islamic American Summit on Sunday.

“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will highlight Bangladesh's firm position against terrorism and extremist militancy in this conference,” said Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali.

“She is going on invitation of Saudi King. This invitation expresses confidence in the prime minister's wise leadership,” he added.

Golam Moshi, Bangladesh's ambassador to Saudi Arabia, will receive the prime minister at the Riyadh King International Airport.

From there, Sheikh Hasina will be taken to Mövenpick Hotel in Riyadh where she will be staying for two days.

Sheikh Hasina will attend the inauguration of the conference 'Global Centre for Combating Extremist Thought' on Sunday. She will take part in a banquet given by the Saudi king as well.

Saudi Arabia's Cultural Affairs and Information Minister Awwad bin Saleh Al-Awwad came to Dhaka on May 9. He met Hasina and invited her to attend the conference.

Mahmood Ali said, “The purpose of the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh is to strengthen security and stability, to establish new partnerships in counterterrorism.”

Hasina is scheduled to return to Dhaka on Tuesday night.
