Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh could work as a 'bridge' between the East and West. "That's why we have taken an initiative to build a new international airport near Dhaka," she said. She said Cox's Bazar Airport will be turned into an international one to increase connectivity between Bangladesh and southeast Asian nations. Norodom Ranariddh, also the half-brother of the current Cambodian King, expressed gratitude to the prime minister for naming a road in Dhaka after former Cambodian King late Norodom Sihanouk's name.
