Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Kuwaiti counterpart Sheikh Ahmad Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah on Wednesday expressed satisfaction that the relationship between the two friendly countries has grown in depth and dimensions over time.

Kuwait’s PM conveyed his greetings to Hasina and through her to the brotherly people of Bangladesh, said the release.                 The two leaders spoke on many dimensions of bilateral cooperation.

The Bangladesh prime minister thanked Kuwait’s prime minister for the telephone call and wished him and the brotherly people of Kuwait a belated Eid-Al-Azha.
