DHAKA, Aug 26, 2018 (BSS) – Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today

behalf, I have great pleasure in extending our warmest felicitations to you
on your assumption of the office of Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of
Australia,” she said in a message.

evolved over the years between the two peoples and countries will be further
strengthened” during Morrison’s term in office.
