Coronavirus may affect the arrival of world leaders in Bangladesh to celebrate Mujib Borsho (Mujib Year).
"However, none of the guests cancelled their trip because of this yet," Foreign Affairs Minister Dr AKM Abdul Momen told the reporters at Sylhet's Osmani International Airport on Saturday.
"One of our guests told us that he won't be able to attend because of other reasons. We are being extra careful so that coronavirus does not affect Mujib Borsho celebrations," the minister added.
Former parliament member Shafiqur Rahman Chowdhury, Sylhet District Awami League's General Secretary Nasir Uddin Khan, Sylhet Metropolitan Awami League's General Secretary Zakir Hossain and Sylhet Sadar Upazila Parishad Chairman Ashfaq Ahmed, among others, were present at the airport.
The Foreign Affairs Minister went to Sylhet to attend a program organised by Awami League in celebration of March 7.
