Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today sought robust Turkish investment in Bangladesh alongside cooperation in sustainable repatriation of Rohingyas.

The prime minister urged the Turkish government to put pressure on Myanmar to bring back their nationals.

PM'S Speech Writer M Nazrul Islam briefed the newsmen after the meeting.

The Turkish envoy said his country's businessmen have shown interest on making more investment in Bangladesh due to its massive infrastructure development particularly for setting up economic zones.
