A red carpet was rolled out as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina arrived in Stockholm last night.

The PM arrived here on a three-day bilateral visit at the invitation of her Swedish counterpart Stefan Lofven.

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

Chief of Protocol of Swedish Foreign Ministry Ambassador Klas Molin, Bangladesh Ambassador in Stockholm Golam Sarwar and Swedish Ambassador in Dhaka Johan Frisell were present at the airport to receive Sheikh Hasina.

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.

On her way to Stockholm from Dhaka, the prime minister made about 24-hour stopover in London.
