Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Atiqul Islam will inaugurate a sculpture of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and a park bearing his name in the Turkish capital, Ankara, on December 13.

The DNCC Mayor made the announcement today, while discussing various events including his upcoming visit to Turkey with senior municipality officials, at Nagar Bhaban in Gulshan, Dhaka.

During his five-day trip, Mayor Atiqul will hold important meetings with his Ankara counterpart to discuss mutual cooperation in the fields of economy, education, culture, sports, technology, science and commerce.

He also announced that Banani Park, Dhaka – adjacent to “Kamal Ataturk Avenue” road which was named after Turkey’s first president, Kemal Ataturk – will also be named after him.

The decision was taken recently to pay tribute to the history of Turkey.

The mayor intends his visit to Ankara to further strengthen Bangladesh’s existing camaraderie with Turkey.

Atiqul Islam will leave Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport for Ankara on Friday morning.
