Awami League will not invite any foreign delegates at its 21st triennial national council, slated for December 20 and 21.
“As per custom, political leaders from other countries are invited to attend Awami League’s national council, but this year we’re not inviting foreign delegates,” Dipu Moni, joint general secretary of Awami League, said yesterday while talking to reporters at the party’s central office on Bangabandhu Avenue.
Earlier, a meeting of sub-committee on reception formed as part of the party’s efforts to make the council successful was held at the party office where AL presidium member Mohammed Nasim, also convener of the committee, was present.
Awami League has chalked out March 2020 to March 2021 to observe “Mujib Year” across the country, to mark birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, she said.
Politicians from different countries will be invited to attend the birth centenary celebration, she added.
To make the party’s 20th national council meaningful, veteran political leaders of different countries were invited to attend the council in October, 2016.
A number of political leaders from China, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Russia, Australia, the UK and Italy joined AL’s triennial council.
