The French government has said the conference, which begins on November 30, will take place as planned, but one of the party sources said: “Going ahead with it would mean taking unbelievable risks.”Meanwhile, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has postponed her official visit to France in view of the prevailing situation following Friday’s terror attacks in Paris.
“In view of the prevailing situation in France in consultation with the French government the official visit of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been postponed,” PM’s press secretary Ihsanul Karim said.
The visit will be rescheduled at a mutually convenient time, he said.
Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid will represent Bangladesh at the UNESCO Leaders Forum, the press secretary said.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was due to leave for Paris tomorrow on a three-day official visit to attend the UNESCO Leaders Forum. – BSS
