Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to reach in Dhaka February 1 for a three-day official visit aiming to further strengthen bilateral relations with Bangladesh.
This will be the first official visit of the Palestine president to Bangladesh.
Earlier, he made a brief stopover in Dhaka in February last year on his way to Japan from Jordan.
During his three-day visit, the Palestinian President will meet President Md Abdul Hamid, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali and discuss strengthening of bilateral ties for continuing support from Bangladesh on Palestinian causes.
The UN Security Council on December 23 last year passed a resolution demanding an end to the construction of Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian territories after the US abstained from voting.
