Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has returned to Dhaka after her three-day visit to London to attend the first ever Girl Summit 2014.

During her stay in the British capital, she also held meetings and talks with her British counterpart David Cameron and other UK leaders.

Hasina and Cameron both agreed to work jointly and continuously for ensuring social and economic development, and promotion of bilateral ties, reports the Daily Star.

At the Girl Summit 2014 held at the Walworth Academy, Sheikh Hasina expressed her belief that a bold and secular political commitment has been extremely important in tackling a socially sensitive challenge like child marriage.

She also said that poverty reduction, ensuring education and creating job opportunities can naturally reduce child marriage.

She also met a five-member delegation of All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG), led by Lord Sheikh, Shadow Foreign Secretary of UK Douglas Alexander, Unicef Executive Director Anthony Lake and British House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee chairman Keith Vaz.

She attended an Iftar and a Doa Mehfil arranged in her honour by the Bangladeshi expatriates in the UK at the ballroom of Hotel Hilton.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was accompanied by a 57-member Bangladesh delegation.
